Scientific Name: Dizygotheca Elegantissima
One of the all-time favorite houseplants, false aralia is a small shrub to large tree. The palmate leaves are grouped around the ends of the branches and look different when the plant is young. Its juvenile leaves are large, with deep, thin, finger-like lobes and toothed edges. Leaf color is dark green with brown tones on the top and pale brown-green underneath. When mature, the leaves become larger, brighter green and their lobes become very broad. Flowers are rarely produced in houseplants, but mature plants produce loose, ball-shaped clusters of flowers at the ends of their branches. The overall shape of the plant is upright due to its strong, straight stems.
