Caring for Aralia nudicaulis

  • Though they will survive under low light as they long as they have moist soil, they do best in medium or full sun when grown indoors, but should be planted in shady areas if placed outside.
  • The thin, fine roots of aralias are subject to rot, so allow the upper half of the soil to thoroughly dry out between waterings.
  • Use a light, peat-based potting soil and place the plant in a small pot as a precaution against overwatering.
  • This type of soil allows for proper aeration and drainage, preventing the plant's roots from becoming waterlogged.
  • Feed aralias with a granular, controlled-release fertilizer with a high nitrogen content every other month.
  • Prune the tips of aralia plants to promote the growth of new leaves and to help maintain its full, lush appearance.
