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.
