Water

In low light conditions, an aralia may need water as little as every 2-3 weeks. 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.

   Common Problems Q&A

Why are my leaves yellowing?

This may be due to a lack of nutrients, repotting or adding fertilizer may help this issue. Overwatering and sudden temperature changes could also be a reason for this issue.

What pest problems do Aralia plants have?

If an Aralia is properly cared for, there should be any serious disease or fungus issues. Watch out for Mealybugs sucking the plant juices, Nematodes, Whiteflies, Aphids (aka Plant Lice).

Why are my leaves dropping?

Low humidity and inadequate soil moisture may be causing this issue. Misting the foliage with distilled or filtered water may help with this issue.
