Polyscias fruticosa, also known as Ming Aralia, is an attractive indoor plant with a woody stem and beautiful pale green feathery leaves, resembling those of Japanese acers. If you are looking for a houseplant that looks like a garden plant, and not overly tropical, this would be a good choice.
Related to ivy and Schefflera, Polyscias species produce similar looking floral structures and berries, although this is very rare indoors. If they do occur, it is best to remove them as they can be toxic.
Polyscias species also have glands that produce a pungent scent when they are stressed – somewhat spicy or like over-brewed coffee.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
