    I bought this plant as part of a large group of plants for a display in a show. I never got any info on the plant and so I don't know what it is or how to care for it. Generally, I figure out how to take care of plants fairly quickly and everything works out. Not the case with this one. It doesn't like me so much. If you can help me identify this plant and give me an idea how to care for it, I would appreciate your help very much.

    I agree, False Aralia.

    Don't feel bad, Aralia's are a bit finicky and don't like a lot of people!

    Don't feel too bad.
    I grow a lot of plants, and have never successfully kept one of these more than a year!

    A shame....they're beautiful!
