Plerandra elegantissima - False Aralia
Sometimes called a "Spider Aralia," Plerandra elegantissima has thin, dark green leaflets that grow in snowflake clusters, creating a striking plant with a full appearance. The stems and petioles of the new growth have a cow-spotted appearance, with white and black splotches along the stems and veins. The dark leaves and the unusual stems make this unique specimen a beautiful statement plant for any space.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil is dry to the touch.
• Considerations: Keep temperatures above 60F. If this plant dries out too much, it will drop leaves to conserve energy. To avoid this, never let the plant fully dry out and keep the plant away from dry heat.
