Fatsia Japonica Spider's Web / Fatsia Tsumugi-shibori
This desirable, rare fatsia has white speckles and spots on broad, palmate leaves. The variegation changes with the seasons and the age of the plant. It was named by Mr. Hirose from Iwakuni (Japan) where the fatsias are cultivated ("japonica").
... potted in a self-mixed permeable organic substrate; not overfertilised, therefore top healthy and robust; repotting not desired until 1-2years; with time it will become quite strong (trunk-forming); showering off the leaves once a month is very good for the plant; it is winter-hardy to a certain extent (the plant can already be put outside now); no direct sun (also suitable for (semi-)shady locations); in my case the Fatsias stand on the protected house wall for the whole winter; the leaves then become quite leathery and robust; Have fun with your new very fascinating Fatsia japonica v. "Spider's Web" / Fatsia Tsumugi-shibori!
