* Required Fields

Watering: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering, once every 3 days during summers and once every 2-3 weeks during winters. Light: Dappled sunlight or shaded area is best.



Potting-mix: Aralia requires well-drained potting soil with enough "heft" to hold the plant in place. A mixture of soil & sand/ perlite + compost can be used. Alternatively one can use a soilless mixture that contains pine bark or sphagnum peat moss as its organic component, and a light component for better drainage, such as perlite or vermiculite. Should be always started in a ceramic pot. The plant loves moisture around it, hence it should be kept where the shade of plants is there or pot can be placed on a tray filled with pebbles and water. If exposed to dry air the leaves start to fall. The soil should be well-drained & porous.

Watering:  Too much water, resulting in root rot, is the main reason aralia plants die. Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before watering. In low light conditions, an aralia may need water as little as every 2-3 weeks. In summers better to give water every 2-3 days.

Lighting: Bright light, no darkness, but not direct sunlight especially no afternoon sun. 1-2 hours of sunlight is ok, but the best is to keep in shade.

Propagation: Cuttings can be propagated during September, February or rainy season when moisture is high. Out of 8-10 cutting, 2-3 only sprout so a pack. 7-10 should be put together. Cutting should be like a finger. The hole in the pot should not be stopped or chocked.

Fertilization – NPK equal amount, light dosing + organic fertilizer. NPK should be given every 15 days. Cow dung manure should be given twice a year.
