Aralia 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. Young leaves and shoots are cooked as vegetables and flavoring.
How to care:
Soil: The tropical Aralia plant grows best in a well-drained, loamy, rich, acidic potting mix. A standard potting mix with some additional perlite added works well for container-grown plants. Treety pot soil mix is just perfect for Aralias
Sunshine: ‘Sun King’ grows best in partial to full shade, and morning sun enhances the leaf color. Consistent soil moisture guards against flagging and/or crispy leaves in dry spells or too much sunlight
Watering: Water your Aralia just enough to keep it from wilting. It’s best to let the top inch or so of the soil to dry before watering again. It may be a couple of times a week to once every two weeks, depending on the size of your plant and how much light it gets.
