Plant Info & Care

Pet Friendly Inconclusive

Like many houseplants, Mings are not intended for consumption.

Care Level Easy

Easy to grow and super low maintenance.

Light Moderate

Prefers moderate to bright, indirect light.

Water Moderate

Allow the top inch or so of soil to dry between watering.

Humidity Moderate

Can do well in low humidity but does better with humidity.

Air Quality Great

A natural superstar air purifier.

Plant Bio

Polyscias fruticosa love bright light as much as indirect light, and are really happy to go a while between waterings. As they mature, they grow upwards of 6' and appear much more shrub-like than anything. Native to tropical areas in the region of India, and also grows in Polynesia, their ferny leaves and bonsai-like contorted stems can lend an elegant touch to any decor.

Roots

Cultivated in several countries of Southeast Asia and the tropical islands of the Pacific region.

Fun Facts

Though toxic to animals, the Ming Aralia (and we do not recommend this) has long been used in traditional medicine as a tonic, and noted to have anti-inflammation, anti-toxin, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is also used against dysentery, neuralgia, rheumatism, and digestion-related ailments.
