Variegated False Aralia

SKU 11649

False aralia (Dizygotheca elegantissima), also known as spider aralia or threadleaf aralia, is grown for its attractive foliage. The long, narrow, green and white leaves, with saw-tooth edges are coppery colored at first, but as they mature they turn dark green, appearing almost black on some plants. Bright light causes dark, blackish-green color on mature leaves. False aralia is usually purchased as a tabletop plant, but with proper care, it can grow 5 to 6 feet (1.5 to 2 m.) tall over a period of several year period.

likes lowlight, allow top 2 inches to dry in between watering.
