Ming Aralia drop foliage readily, and may shed from time to time. To avoid excessive leaf drop, make sure your plant isn't exposed to drafts or heating or cooling elements, like AC or forced-air heating. Mist regularly in the winter to avoid crispy foliage. Aralia can become leggy over time- to encourage bushy growth, try pruning back slightly in the springtime, just before the growing season.
