Glossy evergreen shrub with palm-like leaves reaching out for the sun, the Japanese Aralia is potted drama. This robust, low maintenance plant requires little effort to look good, subtly stealing the show.
Light: Prefers a shaded area to bright, indirect light. Will tolerate some lighter shade, but too much light will cause yellowing of leaves. Avoid direct sunlight.
Water: Ensure the soil remains moist at all times, watering when the top of the soil feels slightly dry to the touch. Do not allow to sit in soggy soil. Use soft water if possible.
Botanical name: Fatsia Japonica
Common name: Japanese Aralia
Note** Yellowing leaves is a sign that your plant has had too much sun. Relocate to rejuvenate.
