Water: Generally every 12-15 days but may differ based on living environment. Allow the soil to dry out between watering. Use finger or wooden stick to poke deep into the soil to check the wetness/humidity. If damp, wait 7-10 days and check again. If moderately humid, wait 5-7 days and check again. If dry, water thoroughly (approximately 10oz). Avoid overwatering.
Light: Aralias thrives in low light but will grow slowly. Medium to bright filtered light is recommended for faster growth. Direct sunlight may burn the plant, especially during summer. Morning sunlight is better than afternoon sunlight.
Air & Temperature: Air circulation helps water evaporation, prevents condensation on the leaf surfaces, and reduces the growth of fungal infections and rot. Dramatic temperature change will damage the plant. Room temperature is recommended (68-85F)
Fertilize: Mix few drops of liquid plant food with water when watering the plant. Use on every other watering session for best result. Since aralias are slow growing plants, they require less plant food. Another way of using the liquid plant food is to twist off the tip (not entire cap) and stick the entire bottle into the soil near the root. Do not squeeze the bottle as the soil will naturally absorb the liquid. When the bottle is empty, replace with new bottle.
