What Are the Light Green Dots on the Leaves of My False Aralia

What are the light green dots on the leaves of my false aralia that look like spores? Not all leaves have these things but enough to bother me and give me concern.

Well, they're not spores, that's for sure. If they're very small, like pin pricks, you might be seeing spider mite damage. If they're larger, and you can pry them off with your fingernail, that would be scale insects. If they are in the tissues of the leaf itself, they might be a fungus, bacterial, or viral infection. For mites or scale, insecticidal soap applied 4 times at 7 - 10 day intervals should take care of the problem.

For a disease, there's not much you can do other than remove infected leaves, and practice good culture to keep the plant as strong as possible.

Name of Plant and Where to Find

I was given seed pods and three sprouted. The leaves resemble a palm only real lacy and they have a sticky substance. Very temperamental. Can put on leaves profusely then start turning yellow and drop off. Has very unusual sticky substance that even makes the pot sticky. Can you tell me the name of this plant? How to find care info? Indoor plant or patio.

The sticky substance and yellowing leaves would indicate a infestation of some kind of insect.
Treat the plant with Neem Oil. Neem Oil is safe for people and pets.

My false aralia’s leaves are turning yellow. Help!

Yellowing leaves can indicate a watering issue, too much or too little.

The soil should dry to a depth of about 1" between waterings.
The plant should be watered throughly and the excess water drain freely from the soil.

Here is a great article to help refresh you on the care requirements.

The sticky substance is the residue from pests, most likely spider mites or mealybug.
