House Plant

Fabian Aralia (aka Polyscias Aralia)

  • Location:

    I originate on the islands of Polynesia as well as India and South America.
  • Looks:

    I have a shrubby trunk with thinner shoots carrying masses of circular leaves.
  • Height:

    As a container plant I can reach 3 to 4 feet tall.
  • Environment:

    I like to have about half a day of sun on my leaves. But I like the warm so must not be up against a cold winter window or my leaves will drop. Mist me often, up to 3 times a day!
  • Flowers:

    I have plumes of small white flowers in the wild, but may not flower in a pot.
  • Grooming:

    Remove the suckers that form on my main trunk, if you want upward growth.
  • Life Span:

    I can live up to 10 years or more.
  • Feeding:

    I have a shallow root system so can be prone to root rot. Keep my soil fairly moist but sit me on pebbles inside my pot so I am not sitting in water.
  • Fact:

    I will need to be re potted when my roots raise out of the soil. But I am also toxic to pets and children. Don't eat me.
