How to grow and maintain Polyscias Roble (Aralia Roble):

It thrives best in bright indirect sunlight but will survive in shade. Avoid direct sunlight.

It grows well in rich, acidic, medium moisture, well-drained loamy soil or use a peat moss-based potting mix with perlite.

Water your Aralia Roble plant regularly during the growing season and always keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. You can allow the topsoil to become slightly dry between each watering. During the winter months, reduce watering.

It prefers an average room temperature between 65 degrees Fahrenheit โ€“ 85 / 18 degrees Celsius โ€“ 29 degrees Celsius.

Fertilize monthly from spring through fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half. Young leaves that are yellowish-green are caused by a lack of nutrients.

It can be easily propagated by cuttings. Take 10 cm stem tip cuttings in late spring or summer. Cut just below a leaf node and expel the lower leaves from the cutting and use a rooting hormone for the best outcome.

Pests and Diseases:
There is no serious pest or disease problems. Watch for aphids, scale, mealybugs, and whiteflies. Root rot may occur in overly
soggy soils.
