Light: Bright indirect light
Watering: Allow the top half of the compost to dry between waterings when the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a balanced liquid fertilizer every few weeks from spring through autumn, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Equal parts of soil-based compost, perlite and bark or coco fiber.
Tip: This is safe for pets and children. Direct sunlight can leave sunburn marks on the leaves, so it is best to keep it away from direct sun. Fatsias can grow fairly quickly so you can prune it to control its shape.
