Balfour aralia loosing leaves

tamron64March 8, 2009

I have a 2 foot balfour aralia with about a 2" diameter trunk. I repotted it into a 1" larger pot about 2 weeks ago and a lot of the smaller leaves at the bottom of the plant are turning yellow and dropping.

Is this normal, could it be from the transplant or am I doing something wrong? I water it when the soil becomes almost dry and mist daily.

Thanks Norma

Hello, I was wondering how your balfour aralia is doing? My sister just transplanted hers, and the same thing is happening! Leaves turning yellow, dropping, etc. Did your plant pull through and start forming new leaves or did it not survive?

I've had one of these as a house plant for 30 years. From time to time it does appear to lose leaves. I let it stay pretty dry when it does so and eventually it has seemed to come back sprout new growth. After a bit the cycle repeats. Don't know if this is characteristic since I don't know anyone else who has one.
