"False Aralia"

"False Aralia"
(Aralia elegantissima/Dizygortheca elegantissima)
Native to Australasia
This graceful plant performs best in very bright indirect light or full sun. In any light, its soil must dry to the touch between thorough soaking waterings. It prefers high humidity (achieved with spray misting.) Maximum height is approximately six feet. Fertilize in the spring & summer months (March through October) when tree is actively growing. Propagate with stem cuttings (dipped in a rooting hormone) or air-layering (on woody stems) in the spring.
Grown in full sun, the leaves take on a very attractive dark-purple hue. When this aralia reaches five feet or so, the delicate leaf – 'fingers' become larger & broader to most interesting effect.
