Plant of the Week

The Variegated Ming Aralia

There's a handsome plant.
The Ming Aralia has been a plant favorite since the 70's and the popularity couldn't be growing faster.
As you can see, it's very unique and stunning. And being variegated, the leaves have swirls of green and white which create a stunning appearance. 

This plant does need lots of good, indirect light with a nice drink once a week. 
Keep in mind, Ming Aralias do grow up to 5 - 6 ft tall but very slowly. If you think it needs to be re-potted, consult a professional. They can be very temperamental and a move could set it over the edge.

Leave shedding is common, especially when moved into a dimmer area. Be sure to keep them in a bright location, as they will do much better there.
