Native to Japan, southern Korea and Taiwan, Fatsia Japonica is a species of flowering plant in the Araliaceae family. It's an evergreen shrub and grows white flowers in autumn, followed by small black fruit in spring. The paper plant has eight leaf lobes, which is where it gets it's name 'fatsia' from, the Japanese word meaning 'eight'.

Despite occasionally being called the 'Castor Oil Plant', the Fatsia Japonica has no relation to the vegetable oil whatsoever. Confusing? We agree!

You'd be forgiven for thinking this tropical-looking plant is high maintenance, but in reality, the paper plant is as easy-going as they come. Place wherever you like as it will handle most conditions, but to see it thrive, show it the best of both worlds, with an equal mix of sun and shade - just avoid direct sunlight.

Jo's Top Tip

To keep your plant looking full and symmetrical, rotate it a quarter turn on a weekly basis. Aim to trim the leaves at the end of winter and it will grow fresh for the new year.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
