A newcomer to the world of decorative house trees, the Heteropanax are chosen for their small leaves that resemble an outdoor tree, not often found in such a manageable size at just over a meter tall. 

The fast growing new leaves of the QuinceTree beautifully unfurl before your eyes, and can even be clipped to create your ideal shape. 

Evergreen shrubs or trees in the family Araliaceae, native to Asia, they are very drought tolerant and need infrequent watering, and a bright spot with indirect light. 

Pots featured in images: Terracini Long Tom, D35cm.

Best space & place

Happiest situated in indirect bright light. It is happy in most rooms, with a minimum temperature of 12°C. It can take direct sun, but leaves may wilt / lighten if exposed for long periods. 

When to water & feed

Allow to dry out between waterings - this is a very drought tolerant plant and should not be overwatered. Apply a general purpose houseplant feed like in the summer months. Reduce watering in winter.

Need to know

Wilting leaves is a sign it needs a little more water or ventilation if the room is overly hot. 

For no fuss or mess you can put the plant in the growing pot it arrives in straight inside a decorative one. This also allows allows excess water to be drained after watering. 
For a good fit the opening (not diameter) and height of the new decorative pot need to be several centimetres greater than the current growing pot.
