Fatsia Japonica

Fatsias are dramatic foliage plants that can be grown as a houseplant or even outdoors in a very sheltered garden. They thrive in low light levels so are great plants for a dark room or office or for a sheltered urban garden.

Looking after your Fatsia Japonica

These striking foliage plants are incredibly easy growing and can be grown in sun, in shade either indoors as a houseplant or outdoors in a sheltered spot. In fact, they are one of the few plants that will tolerate almost no natural sunlight.

Whilst in a small pot it will need regular watering. Water from the top and let the excess drain away. You can stand it in very shallow water, if you are away for a few days and it will recover well from neglect.

Fatsia are not particularly greedy plants but like all pot plants will need a bit of extra nutrients over time. We’ve included a slow release sachet of feed in this parcel to help with this. The sachet is enough to treat twice, usually 3 months after arrival and again after another 6-9 months.

As your plant grows you may want to repot it in a larger pot, if it gets untidy just clip it back into shape using sharp scissors or secateurs. If you prefer you can plant it directly into the ground outside. Whilst young it will need protecting from harder frosts but once established these exotic looking plants are surprisingly hardy and can grow into sizeable shrubs.

Problem solving:

In late summer or autumn, you might notice some of the larger older leaves wilt and turn yellow. This is perfectly natural and these can be removed to make way for the new growth and to keep the plant tidy.

In a very bright spot like a conservatory you can sometimes get scorch in the midday sun, try and keep your Fatsia out of hot direct sunlight when inside.
