Polyscias filicifolia, also known as Ming aralia or fern leaf aralia, is a tropical plant that is native to the Pacific Islands and Southeast Asia. It is a popular indoor plant that is valued for its attractive foliage, which consists of delicate, lacy leaves that resemble fern fronds.

Here are some care tips for Polyscias filicifolia:

  1. Light: Ming aralia thrives in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Do not let the plant sit in water.

  3. Humidity: Ming aralia prefers high humidity, so misting the leaves with water can be beneficial. Alternatively, you can place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase the humidity around the plant.

  4. Temperature: This plant prefers warm temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid placing it near drafts or in areas with fluctuating temperatures.

  5. Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based soil mix.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).

  7. Pruning: Ming aralia can become leggy over time. Prune it back in the spring to encourage new growth and maintain a bushy shape.

  8. Propagation: Ming aralia can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take 4-6 inch cuttings in the spring or summer and root them in water or a well-draining soil mix.
