Native to the Pacific Islands and Southeast Asia, the Ming Aralia is an indoor, ornamental, versatile and decorative plant which is the epitome of house plant excellence. The Ming Aralia is especially interesting for its foliage - indeed the name polyscais means many-shaded, a reference to its luxurious foliage. Their stalks carry compound leaves with up to seven or more leaflets. Unlike many plants that branch sideways, the Ming Aralia grows vertically. The Aralia is very easy to maintain, grows well in either full / partial sun.
