Scientific Name: Polyscias fruticosa

Common Names: Ming Aralia, Polynesian Aralia

Overview: The Ming Aralia (Polyscias fruticosa) is an exquisite and graceful houseplant, cherished for its finely divided, feathery foliage. This elegant plant showcases layers of rich green leaves, creating a lush, dense canopy atop slender, woody stems. Its unique, oriental look adds a sophisticated, natural beauty to any indoor environment. Typically reaching a height of 6-8 feet when grown indoors, it can be easily pruned to maintain a smaller, more compact shape, suiting various spaces from office corners to cozy living rooms. Ming Aralia thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers a consistently moist soil environment, without being waterlogged. Regular misting helps to maintain the humidity levels it loves. It’s a great choice for plant enthusiasts looking for a slightly challenging yet rewarding plant.

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.

    This was bought as a gift for my sister and brother-in-law. They were delighted to receive a ming aurelia. However, the plant was not in good shape when it arrived. They unboxed and watered according to directions and are still hoping that it will perk up. Disappointing.

    This plant is stunning! It was very well-packaged when it arrived (soil and leaves intact) and has been acclimating to its new home for 5 days with only a single leaf lost. Beautiful, healthy plants at a very fair price. I’m happy to say I’ve found my forever plant supplier!

  13. Zahra (verified owner)

    This was my first time ordering a plant online and expected the worst, it’s still cold up here and my mailboxes were closed for an additional 2 days after delivery… was SO surprised that it had not dropped a SINGLE leaf in transit, everything was green and bushy still (if not a little packed down + disgruntled LOL). been 2 weeks and has taken to the transition remarkably well. Fair pricing, good sales, fast shipping. Nice job!
