Plant Bio

Totally unique and utterly adorable, our aralia ming stump for delivery will add an eye-catching touch to your home. Its fluffy foliage makes it one of the most distinct shrub plants, with a pale green color on top and deep purple on the bottom. Not only is it easy to care for, it also acts as a natural air purifier.

Roots

Cultivated in several countries of Southeast Asia and the tropical islands of the Pacific region.

Fun Facts

Though toxic to animals, the Ming Aralia (and we do not recommend this) has long been used in traditional medicine as a tonic, and noted to have anti-inflammation, anti-toxin, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is also used against dysentery, neuralgia, rheumatism, and digestion-related ailments.

A pick me up gift ...

Sent as a gift and it was a seamless and enjoyable experience

I sent an Aralia Ming to a friend who has just lost a dear companion. I can't speak to how the plant looked on arrival but I received great praise from the recipient. The process was simple, the order went out quickly, and delivery was made during a holiday week (usually delayed this time of year). Will definitely use Lively Root again! If you don't yet own an Aralia Ming, you need to fix that asap

A beautiful addition to my little plant family

This Ming stump arrived well packaged and in good health! The foliage on this little stump is beautiful and it has only continued to feather out on the top. It is a stunning addition to my living room and I keep it healthy with a little humidity during the week as the air gets dry. Great for beginners, a delightful simple little guy for those with more experience. It even comes with a helpful little starter card that will give you the basics about your plant!
