Ming Aralia thrives in bright, but indirect sunlight. This plant can also handle shade quite well, so you don’t need to obsess over positioning it perfectly. That being said, we do recommend avoiding leaving your Ming Aralia in direct sunlight, especially during the hasher hours of the afternoon sun. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can scorch this plant’s delicate foliage and leave it looking damaged and unhealthy.
This plant is quite resilient to various light settings. It will grow faster in bright, indirect sunlight, but also does impressively well in low-light settings. One thing this plant hates is transitioning between light settings. If you move Ming Aralia from one light setting to another, it might experience shock. Without careful aftercare, shock can kill a plant. So, if you need to change from one light setting to another, make sure to transition this plant gradually.
