The Dirt

Native to Taiwan and Hainan. Arboricola derives from Latin, meaning tree. The genus name is a tribute to a 19th century polish botanist named Jacob Christoph Scheffler. This plant can grow to be 15ft tall, at home they typically do no exceed 6ft. It is easy to prune and shape, thus lends easy to the bonsai and propagate.

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Medium


Water one a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Toxic


Only when ingested it may cause mild oral and gastrointestinal upsetness. Keep out of reach from pets and small children.
