Polyscias fruticosa, or Ming aralia, is a perennial plant, dicot evergreen shrub or dwarf tree native to India. The plant grows fairly slowly but can reach up to 1 to 2 meters in height.
Spray the plant 1 or 2 times a week with lukewarm water. It is important that the Polyscias retain a moist soil in summer. It is therefore advisable to water regularly. It is easy to check whether the soil is still moist by simply putting a finger into the soil.
