Polyscias fruticosa 'Elegans' (Parsley Aralia)
I bought a Parsley Aralia (Polyscias fruticosa 'Elegans') some months ago... actually didn't even know what it was until today. For the last month or so, its leaves have been falling of. It is still producing new growth, but it has dramatically thinned out. Does anyone know how to nurse this plant back to full foliage. I did repot (its in about an 8in pot now.. up from about a 5in pot) and I keep the soil moist, but not wet. I have a makeshift nursery in my apartment for some orchids I've been trying to grow, so I can control humidity and light, but I'm not sure what it will take to liven this beauty back up. I'd appeciate any sugestions. I beleive it is a relatively young specimen, because its main trunks are still partially green, thin (4-5 mm), and flexible). It hasn't really began looking like a 'tree' yet.
