False aralia

Schefflera elegantissima, Dizygotheca elegantissima

Keeping this plant in hot, dry environments will encourage spider mite infestations. Southern or Western exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office is best for this plant. The plant soil should be kept uniformly moist, but not wet. Wait one year, then begin light monthly fertilization, with a commercial all-purpose fertilizer.
