Ming Aralia Plants
Q.

Ming aralia leaves turning yellow and dropping off. I keep it moist and it gets north facing light.

I live in Colorado which is very very dry but manage to keep my aralia moist and near a north facing window. I noticed when once the plant dried out and started to droop but immediately watered and fed it a watered down fertilizer. The leaves continue to turn yellowish and fall off. What now? Is it doomed? I love the lacy leaves of this plant and looked all over until I finally found one in a nursery. You just don't see many of these plants though I have noticed them in a local mall that barely gets any light. Can bright light be causing my plant's decline?

Yellowing leaves can be a sign of overwatering or underwatering, root rot, improper lighting, and chemical imbalance. I don't think your plant is getting too much light, maybe not enough. The moisture level can be tricky. It should be kept consistently moist but not wet. A fine line there. Be sure it never sits in standing water.
