Plants look after us if we look after them
The Polyscias is sometimes referred to as the ‘house tree’, due to its silhouette complete with trunk, branches and leaves. But of course all at a handy living room scale, so what more is there to like? 'Poly' means ‘much’ or ‘many’, and ‘scias’ is Greek for shade. The message could not be clearer; the plant likes the shade, so never force it into the full blast of the sun. Site the plant in a corner, where it can radiate its gentle green peace and quiet.
