What's an Aralia?

Botanical Classification: Araliaceae (family)

About

Aralias have been popular houseplants for more than a century. They’re easy to grow and are loved for their alluring foliage–the long, narrow, serrated leaves. 

Your Aralia will flourish near a sunny window where it can receive bright to moderate indirect light. This plant is relatively low-care but will appreciate regular watering and misting.

Fun Fact

The leaves of the Threadleaf Aralia bear a resemblance to the leaves of a plant of the, shall we say, psychoactive variety.

Don’t be alarmed if your Aralia drops a few leaves while adjusting to its new environment. Aralia plants are sensitive to environment and temperature changes. Give it a few weeks to adjust and it should stop shedding leaves.
