Spider or threadleaf aralia, is grown for its attractive foliage. The long, narrow, dark green leaves with saw-tooth edges are coppery colored at first, but as they mature they turn dark green, appearing almost black on some plants.
Usually purchased as a tabletop plant, but with proper care, it can grow to about 1.5 - 2m tall over a period of several years. This plant will enjoy a sunny window where it will receive bright to moderate light, but where the sun’s rays never fall directly on the plant. A warm spot is best as the foliage suffers damage when temperatures fall below 15 degrees.
Water the plant when the soil is dry at a depth of 2.5 cm. Drench the pot with water and empty the saucer under the pot after the excess drains through.
Botanical name: Aralia Dizygotheca
Plant only. This plant comes in a standard 170mm plastic pot.
