False aralia (Dizygotheca elegantissima), also known as spider aralia or threadleaf aralia, is grown for its attractive foliage. The long, narrow, dark green leaves with saw-tooth edges are coppery colored at first, but as they mature they turn dark green, appearing almost black on some plants. Bright light causes dark, blackish-green color on mature leaves.

Place the false aralia houseplant near a sunny window where it will receive bright to moderate light, but where the sun’s rays never fall directly on the plant. Direct sun can cause the leaf tips and edges to turn brown.

Care for false aralia plants includes regular watering and fertilizing. Water the plant when the soil is dry at a depth of 1 inch. Drench the pot with water and empty the saucer under the pot after the excess drains through. Fertilize every two weeks with liquid houseplant fertilizer in spring and summer and monthly in fall and winter.
