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").
Offered is a 7-year-old plant; potted in a self-mixed permeable organic substrate; not overfertilised, therefore top healthy and robust; repotting desired after 2-3years; with time it will become quite vigorous; showering the leaves once a month is very good for the plant; it is winter-hardy to a certain extent; no direct sun (also suitable for (semi-)shady locations; in my case the Fatsias stand on a protected house wall throughout the winter; the leaves then become quite leathery and robust; enjoy your new, very fascinating Fatsia japonica v. "Spider's Web" / Fatsia Tsumugi-shibori!
