Aralia Fabian

English name:

Aralia Fabian

Latin name:

Polyscias Scutellaria Fabian

About me:

I have a shrubby trunk with thinner shoots carrying masses of circular leaves that are green on top and maroon underneath.

Useful to know:

Origin

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

Height/Growth

My tree-like appearance is a little misleading. I can grow to between three and four feet but I'm unlikely to get bigger than that.

Light

I like to have about half a day of sun on my leaves.

Water

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.

Temperature

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.!

Feeding

Feed once a month with a balanced fertiliser during the growing period.

Grooming

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

Care

Mist me often, up to 3 times a day!.

Toxicity

Keep away from children and pets. Don't eat me.

Fact

I will need to be repotted when my roots raise out of the soil.
