Description

Meet the Polyscias, also known as the Ming Aralia. TYou can recognise the plant by its tree-like silhouette, complete with trunk, branches, and leaves, conveniently sized for indoor spaces.

Origin

The name 'Polyscias' comes from the Greek word 'poly,' meaning 'many,' and 'scias,' meaning 'shade.' And that's precisely what this plant loves: shade. Find a spot where it will not be in direct sunlight.

The Polyscias fruticosa originally native to tropical regions in Asia and islands across the Pacific Ocean, such as Polynesia. In the past, Polyscias leaves were used as bowls or food packaging.

The exact origin of Polyscias is challenging to pinpoint, because the plant appears in various natural habitats. You'll often encounter Polyscias in lush forests beneath the sheltering canopy of larger trees.

Care

Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering the Polyscias. Allow the top layer of soil to dry out between waterings. Occasionally misting the leaves will help improve humidity, especially during dry winter months.

Find a cozy corner and let the Polyscias bring in tranquility and a touch of green. It thrives both at the office and at home, making it an excellent choice as an office plant too!
