Q.Ming Aralia Help

Anonymous added on April 1, 2011 | Answered

I just bought Ming aralias at Home Depot. I’m new to gardening, so please help me!

1. The window in my room has a draft; is it ok to keep the plant in a corner under one of those new energy-saving white light bulbs, which is cold and pretty bright?

2. Watering advice is conflicting; some places say that soil has to dry between waterings, others advise to always keep it moist.

3. There areĀ four thick trunks in a small pot. Is it ok to separate them? Any tricks to do it with minimal root damage?

I would steer clear of drafty locations, but the use of a plant light should be ok in addition to placement in a sunny window. These plants should also be kept moist. Should be ok to divide plants.
