Living up to its reputation, Polyscias fruticosa 'Ming Stump' is a mesmerizing houseplant originating from the Pacific Islands. With foliage displaying an array of deep green hues, this beauty stands tall with a maximum height of about 6 feet and a width of approximately 3 feet, though pruning can easily maintain its size to suit your space. This versatile plant can flourish as a focal point in a room or as part of a larger indoor garden, adding an exotic touch to your home decor. Polyscias fruticosa 'Ming Stump' is characterized by its intricately divided leaves that give it a unique, lacy appearance. Its stems are thick and woody, adding a sense of drama to its overall presentation. It grows upright and compact, making it a perfect addition to small spaces. When grown in a pot, it creates a lush, dense foliage, providing a tropical feel to any interior setting. Despite its tropical origins, the 'Ming Stump' is surprisingly easy to care for. It thrives in bright, indirect light and prefers well-drained soil. It can tolerate a range of humidity levels, making it a suitable choice for various climates. Watering should be moderate, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings to prevent root rot. One of the most captivating aspects of the 'Ming Stump' is its slow and steady growth habit. This plant doesn't rush, but rather takes its time to develop into a sturdy, resilient specimen. As it matures, the plant's base may begin to develop a caudex, giving it a unique "stump-like" appearance, hence the name 'Ming Stump'. In addition to its striking foliage, the 'Ming Stump' occasionally produces small, inconspicuous flowers. While not as showy as some flowering houseplants, these delicate blooms add a charming surprise to the plant's overall appeal. In essence, the Polyscias fruticosa 'Ming Stump' is a truly remarkable houseplant. It combines ease of care with an exotic, tropical appearance, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced indoor gardeners. Its lush, dense foliage can fill a space with a sense of tranquility and natural beauty, making it a must-have for any plant lover.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
