Polyscias Fabian
Polyscias, also known as Aralia, is native to islands in the Pacific Ocean. Polyscias is a characteristic tree that likes to be in a shaded place and needs little water. Polyscias literally means "A lot of shade" in Greek. This indoor plant has the property of leaves growing all over the branch. They are green, white or yellow and have a round or heart-shaped appearance. This plant is highly recommended for the shady area in a bedroom or office.

Polyscias can be kept slightly moist, but like many indoor plants, they don't like wet feet. It's better to water a little more often than a lot at once.
Occasionally stick your finger in the soil to feel how quickly it dries. The amount of water used depends on the size of the plants and the location.

Polyscias like to be watered regularly. On the one hand, to keep the ornamental value high, and on the other hand, spraying has a preventive effect against diseases. Dust is also removed from the leaf, so that the leaves can better capture the light.

Polyscias feels at home in a shady spot. The plant does not like direct sunlight. Do not place the plant near heating or convector, because the air is too dry.
After the purchase, find a suitable place for the plant and prefer not to move it, as the police do not like changes.
The best place to place the plant in relation to the window is:
3 to 4 meters south side
2 to 3 meters east or west side
0 to 1 meter north side

It is preferable to prune the plant every year so that it maintains its compact shape. Pruning is best done in spring or summer.

Use compost for  green plants. Read the instructions for use on the packaging. Like most plants, it is not necessary to feed Polyscias in autumn or winter, as the plant is at rest.

leaf fall
If a Polyscias leaf falls, it's no reason to panic. However, if a lot of leaves have fallen, you should take a critical look at the site. The air around the plant will be very dry, which indicates heating or a convector in close proximity. Find another place!
Also, if the air is too dry, brownish edges may appear on the leaves.

Again, due to the very dry air, Polyscias is sensitive to spider mites, mealybugs or aphids. Reduce this chance by watering regularly. You should remove spider mites, mealybugs and aphids with an insecticide as soon as possible.

Polyscias is modest, but can reach a height of 1 to 1.5 meters.
