This is a marginal plant, meaning it grows best in partial shade or even full shade. The plant will bleach out in full sunlight, so a few hours of morning sun in an eastern exposure are best.
It's not actually that picky about soil, but will often do best in a slightly acidic soil mix.
During the growing season, regular moisture is essential. During the winter, cut back water slightly. They are sensitive to sitting in water, so good drainage is important.
Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer throughout the growing season. Cut fertilizer back to once a month or so in the winter.
Potting and Repotting
A full-grown fatsia is a mounding shrub of about 10 feet tall, with large leaves. Your young plants can be repotted annually, moving up one pot size each year. Take cuttings to propagate when you repot and cut the plant back carefully to encourage low bushy growth. Once the plant reaches the maximum height, repot every other year and prune more aggressively. Older plants might need to be root pruned to keep them vigorous and healthy. Although it is best to repot regularly, these plants can actually manage well in the same pot over the course of years.
