Marley The Fatsia Japonica Care Guide

LIGHTING FOR YOUR FATSIA

Marley likes medium to low lighting conditions, avoid direct light. He also likes light shade and will also tolerate deep shade, making him an easy choice for most people.

 

WATERING YOUR FATSIA

In the summer from March to September keep Marly's soil moist, we recommend watering once a week. Watering Wednesday. Marley likes his soil to dry between waterings so use your finger to test the moisture of the soil before giving him a drink.
 
In the winter from October to February reduce watering to less than once a week.

HUMIDITY FOR YOUR FATSIA

Marley will tolerate normal room humidity.

 

WHAT FERTILISER SHOULD I USE FOR MY FATSIA

From March to August give Marley some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering.

 

REPOTTING YOUR FATSIA

When Marley's roots start to come out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot, it is time to repot. For soil, a well drained potting soil is perfect.

 

FATSIA PLANT CARE PROBLEMS

  • Yellow leaves from too much sunlight.

  • Fatsia may look tender and tropical but they are actually really tough plants and can be grown outside in a place that avoids hard frost.
