Fatsia Japonica
 

Origin

The origin of the Fatsia Japonica is East Asia. The Fatsia has a sturdy appearance due to its large leaves. The houseplant requires little maintenance, can stand in partial shade and is therefore very suitable for offices.

Watering

In general moderate watering, in the growing period from March to August a little more than in winter. You can let the soil dry out slightly before watering again. However, do not leave the roots in the water, this will cause root rot.

Substrate

If the pot is provided (or you provide it yourself) with a substrate and a water meter, watering is easy! On arrival there is little water in it, fill the pot slowly with water (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter will rise by itself. All you have to do is keep an eye on this meter. If you go on holiday, you can fill the jar almost half full (you can see this from the meter that is well above its maximum) and you can safely go 3 weeks. In addition, it is also not a problem if the plants are not watered too much and too quickly. The substrate absorbs the water, so when the water meter is at the bottom, the substrate is still moist, but there is no more water at the bottom of the pot. The plant then still has enough space for 4 summer days.

Spraying

Spray the Fatsia Japonica occasionally to remove dust from the leaves and prevent pests. Spraying also improves the quality and ornamental value of the houseplant.

Pitch

The Fatsia can stand in partial shade as well as in a light spot. 4 to 5 hours of sunlight per day is sufficient. The plant can also grow well in the garden or on a terrace. The plant is not frost resistant.

Minimum temperature

During the day 16 ° C

At night 8 ° C

Nutrition

The Fatsia Japonica requires little nutrition. After purchase, the Fatsia can go without food for months. Feed only in spring or summer. Never give too much as this can lead to burning of the roots. Look on the packaging for the correct dosage.

Replanted

It is best to transfer a Fatsia Japonica into a larger pot immediately after purchase. The best period for repotting is spring. A larger pot will stimulate growth and the advantage is a larger buffer soil so that the water is more spread and there is less chance of root rot. Always take a pot that is 20 to 25% larger and do not use Hydro granules on the bottom of the pot. It is best to use a plastic insert sleeve for large pots.

Leaf damage

If a Fatsia gets discolored leaves, this is most likely due to too much water. The lower leaves will hang over time, this is a natural process, simply cut these leaves.

Pruning

Pruning a Fatsia Japonica is not possible due to its shape.

Toxic

The Fatsia Japonica is a poisonous plant.

Diseases

Unfortunately, the Fatsia Japonica is sensitive to pests and diseases. Lice are common, how and why this can occur is difficult to say. It can be by draft or its natural environment (forest)

The Fatsia Japonica is an evergreen finger plant.
