HOW TO CARE FOR
Aralia is an air purifying houseplant that has been popular for more than a century. Prized for its finely cut, divided leaves, Aralia are ideal for adding softness and texture to indoor spaces.
Available in a range of sizes, aralias are great for use in a number of spaces from desks and tabletops to empty corners and entryways.
When should I water my Aralia?
To see if your plant needs water, stick your finger about an inch down into the soil. If it feels dry, water. If the soil feels moist, do not water. If you are unsure, check again in a few days.
Never mist your foliage. Misting leaves causes fungal issues and disease. The only plants that are okay to mist are ferns and carnivorous plants.
Aralia prefers and grows faster in medium or bright indirect light.
While their size varies according to variety, Aralias have the potential to grow upwards of 6 ft. tall.
Aralia prefers a well-drained soil mix.
TEMPERATURE & HUMIDITY
Aralia appreciates humidity and would benefit from the use of humidifier.
Fertilize Aralia March through October. Prune as needed to maintain size and shape. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves, and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month.
IS ARALIA PET SAFE?
According to the ASPCA, Aralia is toxic to dogs, cats, and horses.
If you notice the leaves of your Aralia are yellowing, you may be overwatering.
