Caring for Aralia Miniature White

  • Adequate 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.
  • Handpick as many of the mealybugs from the plant as possible.
  • Treat the areas near the base of the leaves with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol every five days, especially where you see the cottony masses of insects.
  • Insecticidal soap is helpful when mealybugs are in the crawling stage before they attach to the foliage and assume their cottony appearance.
  • Fertilize every two weeks with liquid houseplant fertilizer in spring and summer and monthly in fall and winter.
