False Aralia doesn't like to be moved around much. Changing location can interrupt its photosynthesis cycle, and may cause leaves to drop. Once you have your False Aralia acclimated, try to keep its conditions consistent. The leaf color is affected by light levels, so for darker leaves, put it in an area with more brighter light. Just avoid more than three hours of direct sun for best results.
Native to rainforests in New Caledonia in the South Pacific and part of the Gingseng family. In the rainforest it can grow to be a 50' tall tree but as a house plant it tends to grow a maximum of 6ft. It was exported and noted by a botanist in the 19th century, and has since become a popular houseplant. Can be grown outdoors in zones 10 through 12 but generally prefers to be kept indoors as a houseplant where it can be planted all year round.
