The Polyscias, also known as Aralia, occurs naturally on islands in the Pacific Ocean. A Polyscias is a characteristic tree that likes to stand in a shady place and needs little water. Polyscias literally means “a lot of shade” in Greek. This houseplant has the property that leaves grow over the entire branch. Leaves of a Polyscias are green, white or yellow and have a round or heart-shaped appearance. This houseplant is highly recommended for the dark spot in your room or office.
Pot size: 19 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 70 cm (without the pot)
The Polyscias may be kept slightly moist, but like many green house plants, the Polyscias does not like wet feet. It is better to give a little more water a little more often than a lot at once.
The Polyscias prefers rainwater to tap water. There is often too much lime in tap water so that the leaves can turn white.
Bright, indirect light
Keep the soil slightly damp
