This leafy legend has beautiful, glossy green leaves and a great exotic plant to add to your collection. The large leaves of this beauty are enough to bring any room to life.
Light: Happy in full sun or partial shade.
Humidity: I can tolerate a less humid environment than some.
Water: Keep my soil moist, do not allow it to dry out. But make sure to keep me in a pot that allowed water to drain.
Temperature: Normal room temperature is perfect.
Fertiliser: My growing seasons are spring to summer. Feed me with general houseplant fertiliser every fortnight or so during this period.
Toxicity: I am not toxic to both humans & animals, so perfect for houses with curious critters.
A handy tip - Like many plants, Japanese aralia is susceptible to a variety of aphids - just spray with neem oil if you see any on your plant.
Decorative pot not included.
