ABOUT OUR POLYSCIAS MING
Hello, I’m Mr Ming I go by the name Polyscias ming and the Aralia Ming. My full and bushy foliage is just what you’d expect to see in a glamorous Japanese Garden. In the UK you should probably keep me as a houseplant. I’m not a fan of the cold weather. If you’re wondering where I’d look my best, a bright conservatory or sunny landing is just the place to put me. I love bright light but keep me in a place where I won’t be burnt from direct sunlight.
Natively, I’m found in the pacific islands where I enjoy bright light, hot temperatures and plenty of humidity. Altogether there’s over 80 known species in the pacific islands alone. The ideal spot for me is on a bright landing with plenty of natural light with temperatures between 20ºC-28ºC. Keep me away from hot radiators because this will dry out my foliage very quickly and turn me very brown indeed. Keeping the humidity levels high is very important to help ensure I thrive.
My bushy and full foliage is exactly what's needed to really transport your landing or hallway into a full greenery space.
Big Height (including nursery pot) 80-90cm; pot diameter 21cm.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you care for Polyscias ming?
The Polyscias ming should be placed in a bright room filled with natural light. The ideal temperature is between 20ºC-25ºC. Avoid placing the Polyscias ming in direct sunlight or by radiators as both can dry out the foliage. Keep the environment around the plant as humid as possible by grouping your other humidity-loving plants in the same area or using a humidifier in the same room. The foliage may start to droop when the plant is ready for a drink. Every 5-7 days, check the first two inches of soil and only water when the soil is dry.
Does the Polyscias ming like humidity?
Yes, the Polyscias ming is a humidity-loving plant. Keep the humidity high to avoid the foliage turning brown or crispy. Place plants that release humidity into the air like Bonnie the spider plant and Hamish the fern which will help the overall moisture of the area. For more information on increasing humidity read our blog.
