Description

Caring for your Aralia

Caring for an aralia plant requires an understanding of its specific needs, which vary among different species and cultivars. By providing the right balance of light, water, temperature, and humidity, you can ensure the healthy growth of these magnificent plants.

Light

Aralias prefer bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch their leaves, while too little light may cause leggy growth. A north-facing window is ideal for indoor plants.

Watering

Watering requirements vary by species, but most aralias prefer consistently moist soil. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s crucial to let the topsoil dry out slightly between waterings. They also prefer high humidity, which can be achieved through regular misting, using a humidifier, or placing the plant on a pebble tray with water.

Soil

A well-draining potting mix is essential. You can create a suitable mix by combining regular potting soil with perlite or orchid bark to improve drainage.

Fertilization

Feed your aralia with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every month during the growing season. Reduce feeding in winter when the plant’s growth naturally slows.

Pruning

Pruning helps maintain the desired shape and size, especially for the bushier cultivars. Trim back leggy growth and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.

Pest and Disease Control

Aralias are susceptible to pests like spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Regular inspections and prompt treatment with insecticidal soap or neem oil are crucial. Good air circulation helps prevent fungal diseases.

Repotting

Repot your aralia every 2-3 years or when it becomes root-bound. Choose a pot only slightly larger than the previous one to avoid excessive soil moisture.

    Another stunning beauty that I’m thrilled to add to my collection! It arrived very well-packaged with no soil or leaf loss. It has acclimated well to its new home and I couldn’t be more pleased. Beautiful, healthy addition to my plant family. The folks at PlantVine definitely know what they’re doing, and they’ll always be my go-to for plant purchases. Excellent experience from start to finish!
