Ming Aralia

Polyscias fruticosa Ming Aralia
We love the Ming Aralia for its whispy green leaves and its gnarly, dramatic trunk. This tropical plant thrives in a bright spot with high humidity.
Bright, indirect light is ideal; moderate indirect light is acceptable.
Water thoroughly, but allow top 2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again. Enjoys high humidity. Mist leaves daily if humidity is low.
Prefers 65°-85°F
Fertilize monthly during spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer at half the recommended rate. The Ming Aralia enjoys moist soil, but overly soggy soil will lead to root rot.
Toxic to pets
Difficulty Level: Moderate
