What other plant parents say
I’ve had a great time with this plant. The key is to not over water it. If I were you I would get a soil meter to determine if it’s dry or not. Leave the top of the soil dry, water from the bottom.
Poisonous to cats. Roots are very fragile and over watering can easily kill the plant. When transplanting you need to be very careful

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Balfour Aralia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
