My last FA
#FalseAralia So, my last false aralia was doing really good, had a good amount of room to grow, I watered it when it would do the little “flop” (which I don’t know if that’s correct to do or if that was stressing the plant out) and it had indirect light. It eventually flopped over and never popped back up and it dried all the way out even with misting and watering. I’m not really sure what I did or if these are just very difficult plants to grow but it was very heart breaking. So what I’m asking is if, with the very little knowledge and information I have, can you tell me what I may have done wrong?

Temperature swings and fluctuations in humidity—especially cold temperatures and low humidity—can cause false aralia to drop some leaves. This plant likes a stable, warm and moist environment. Be sure to keep it away from drafty doors and windows.

If you accidentally let your Threadleaf Aralia's soil dry out completely, you may need to soak it in the sink or tub to properly rehydrate the soil. Keep in mind that when the soil goes from bone-dry to saturated, it can cause stress for your Aralia and cause leaves to drop.
