Polyscias fruticosa 'Snowflake'
After my last experiences with a 'Ming Aralia,' I was a bit reluctant to purchase another one (yes, it scarred me that bad... I've never killed a plant so fast in my life).
I found this beauty at a local BBS a couple weeks ago and just HAD to try again. It took me awhile to figure out exactly which 'Ming Aralia' I purchased, but it's called 'Snowflake.'
So far, I've only lost 5-6 leaves (or branches if you want to be technical), but I believe it's starting to like me. I've noticed some new growth already, and it's recently stopped losing leaves. I believe it enjoys the humidity tray I've placed underneath it. I've already repotted it, overwatered and underwatered it, so the new growth is a sign to me, it's not such the Drama Queen I thought it was going to be (I've read some horror stories about these plants).
Just wanted to share, I don't think this is a plant you see every day (if it is, it's... not something I see every day, haha).
