Fatsia Japonica

Origin

The origin of the Fatsia Japonica is East Asia. The Fatsia has a tough look through its large leaves. The living plant needs little maintenance, can be in half shade and is therefore very suitable for offices.

Water tax

In general, moderate watering, during the growing period which runs from March to August, is slightly more like winter. You can allow the soil to dry out before watering again. However, do not leave the roots in the water, causing root rot.

Substrate

If the pot is provided (or you provide it yourself) from a substrate and a water meter, watering is easy! On arrival, there is little water, fill the pot slowly with water (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter goes up automatically. All you have to do is keep an eye on this meter. If you go on vacation, you can fill the pot almost half full (this is what you see at the meter that ends up above its maximum) and you can rest 3 weeks away. In addition, it does not matter if the plants do not get too much and get water too fast. The substrate absorbs the water, so if the water meter is underneath the substrate is still moist, but there is no water left underneath the pot. The plant still has enough space for 4 summer days.

Spraying

Spray the Fatsia Japonica occasionally to remove dust from the leaves and prevent pests. Spraying also promotes the quality and decorative value of the room plant.

Pitch

The Fatsia can be in the half shadow as well as in a light spot. 4 a 5 hours of sunlight a day is sufficient. The plant can also be well in the garden or on a terrace. The plant is not frost resistant.

Minimum temperature

During the day 16 ° C

at night 4 ° C

Nutrition

The Fatsia Japonica requires little nutrition. After purchase, Fatsia can still have months without food. Feeding only in spring or summer. Never give too much this can lead to burning of the roots. Look at the package for the correct dose.

Overpoten

A Fatsia Japonica is best served immediately after purchase in a larger pot. The best period for sprinkling is spring. A larger pot will stimulate growth and the advantage is a larger buffer soil, which makes the water more dispersed and there is less chance of root rot. Always take a pot that is 20 to 25% larger and do not use Hydro grains on the bottom of the pot. It is best to use plastic insethoes with large pots.

Bladder damage

If a Fatsia gets discolored leaves, this is most likely due to too much water. The lower leaves will hang over time, this is a natural process, simply cut these leaves.

Prune

Protein pruning a Fatsia Japonica is not possible due to its shape.

Toxic

The Fatsia Japonica is a poisonous plant.

Diseases

Unfortunately, Fatsia Japonica is susceptible to pests and diseases. Often lice are common, how and why this can arise is difficult to say. It can be by trip or its natural environment (forest)

The Fatsia Japonica is a evergreen finger plant.
