Meet the Aralia Fabian Stump

Fabian Stump

Here’s a plant that gets a lot of attention at Retreat. The woody trunk gives the aralia fabian stump a whimsical, outdoorsy look for an indoor houseplant. Since this plant looks unfamiliar, or different than your usual houseplants, we find some people are fearful to give it a try. The aralia Fabian stump actually does very well indoors in a container, and it does not require any exceptional care. We recommend allowing the first few inches of soil to dry before watering. When on the fence about watering, it’s probably better to wait just a bit longer—these plants do not like to be overwatered.
