About Dinner Plate Aralia
An Aralia is an evergreen plant native to Africa, Asia, Australia, parts of North and Central America, and South America. The distinct leaves of a Dinner Plate Aralia resemble leathery, round, dinner plates about 1-2 inch in diameter, which is how the plant got its nickname, the Dinner Plate Aralia.
The leaves can range in color from light green to dark green and some varieties have green and cream colored variegated leaves. Aralias are not good houseplants for beginners since they are easy to over- water which results in root rot and leaves falling off. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children.

Planting and careAdequate watering is of course, essential, but over-watering is above all the greatest cause of the demise of virtually all Aralias.
It is generally thought that plants will thrive when kept on the dry side.
False aralia does not like to be moved. A sudden change in location causes the leaves to drop off.
Trimming the tips of an Aralia Plant helps promote new growth.
Dinner Plate Aralia care
Aralia plants can propagate by stem cuttings. Propagating aralia plants is more successful when temperatures are above 21 degrees C. Take softwood, or green-tip, cuttings from an aralia plant in the summer, using the top 10 inches of the plant. Strip the majority of the leaves from the bottom of the stems, then place them upright into a pot of moist, sandy soil.
The stems will begin to root after a few days. When the plant gets larger, transfer it to a new pot or your garden.
