How to care for your Aralia
Use these instructions to care for an Aralia. This guide will tell you how to water an Aralia; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.
Your Aralia prefers indirect bright light, and can adjust to lower light. Too much direct light will scorch the leaves, but too little light will cause slow growth and yellow leaves. Rotate your plant monthly to keep growth even. If you are worried you don’t have enough light in your home, try adding a grow light.
Water your Aralia when the soil volume is 50% dry. Always check the soil moisture before watering. Water thoroughly until you see water flow out of the drainage hole and discard any excess water in the saucer.
Your Aralia prefers a humid environment. Place under a pebble tray or have a humidifier nearby.
Your Aralia is most comfortable in temperatures between 65-80°F.
Feed once a month in the spring and summer when it is producing new leaves with a general-purpose fertilizer at half strength. Always make sure the soil is damp before applying any fertilizer.
Aralias are considered toxic to humans and pets if ingested.
Try not to move your Aralia very often, since they prefer a consistent environment. If you do need to relocate it, you may see a bit of leaf drop. Not to worry—it will adjust. Prune any discolored leaves as they age with sharp snips. s.
