Aralia Care

Aralia Care

Originally originating from the tropical Pacific Islands this plant thrives indoors and outdoors in warmer climates. Also used as Bonsai.


Water: Too much water, resulting in root rot, is the main reason aralia plants die. Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. In low light conditions, an aralia may need water as little as every 2-3 weeks.


 Light: Aralia plants can survive in low light conditions, but grow faster and produce more leaves in medium to bright indirect light. 


Temperatures: Aralia plants prefer temperatures between 60°-85° F.

It sounds like you’re on the right track! Washing and cutting back the infected roots will help with reviving your plant. Changing the old soil will also help get rid of the moisture around the roots. Best of luck!

Is there a way to bring back a plant that has started to suffer from root rot? I had a difficult time trying to find the type of plant it was and in result I was watering it on the same schedule as my other house plants. I have since dried the roots and relocated it from the direct sun, but nothing has seemed to change. I thought about washing and cutting back some of the roots and changing out the old soil, but wasn’t sure.

Thanks, Liz
