I’m False Aralia. My unique and textured leaves make me the perfect tabletop plant to accent your space. My leaves start out as a reddish, coppery green and eventually turn into a beautiful dark green shade. You probably have not heard of me before which makes me the perfect plant if you’re searching for something different. I am great at purifying the air in your home and I’m non-toxic to your pets.
