Fatsia

Do they have flowers and when can I repot to larger pot?

ANSWERS

Grown outdoors, they do flower in October. However, unless you can give a potted plant an extreme level of light (a solarium, or summers outdoors) you're unlikely to see them. This article has some information you might find interesting. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/landscape/shrubs/hgic1088.html

Repotting is a topic without a lot of agreement. Some people advise repotting every year, some every 2 years, some only when necessary. Some people recommend repotting only in early summer, just before the plant goes into its major growth cycle. Others find repotting at any time is successful. The pertinent questions about repotting are how large a pot, what kind of soil, and does the plant really need repotting. This article will get you started on answering those questions: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/learn-more-about-repotting-houseplants.htm

Your plant may be getting uneven water.

If this is potted, make sure your watering the entire pot.

Fatsia Japonica

I live in a condo where a tree/bush is growing. It seems very sad and not cared for the right way by the gardeners hired by the strata. I believe it is a Fatsia Japonica, which I read about on your website. I’m not sure if it’s absolutely the same tree/bush or not and was wondering if you could help. I’d like the plant to look nice and healthy so I’d like to pass some information onto the gardeners.
