Description: Fatsia 'Spider's Web', also known as Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web', is a striking evergreen shrub prized for its distinctive variegated foliage and architectural form. Belonging to the Araliaceae family, this ornamental plant is native to Japan and Korea, where it thrives in shady woodland areas. The 'Spider's Web' variety is named for its unique foliage pattern, which features splashes of creamy-white variegation resembling a spider's web, adding visual interest and texture to any garden landscape. With its low-maintenance nature and tolerance of shade, Fatsia 'Spider's Web' is an excellent choice for adding year-round color and structure to shady gardens or indoor spaces.

🌿 Botanical Name: Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web'

💧 Care Level: Easy. Fatsia 'Spider's Web' is relatively low-maintenance and adapts well to a variety of growing conditions.

📏 Size: The 'Spider's Web' Fatsia can reach a height and spread of 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters), although size may vary depending on growing conditions and care.

☀️ Light: Place the 'Spider's Web' Fatsia in partial to full shade. It thrives in dappled sunlight or indirect light and is well-suited to shady garden beds or indoor spaces with limited light. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day, as this can scorch the foliage.

💧 Water: Water the 'Spider's Web' Fatsia regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water deeply whenever the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, especially during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce watering frequency in the winter months, but do not allow the soil to dry out completely.

💦 Humidity: Fatsia 'Spider's Web' prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly, especially during dry indoor conditions or in arid climates.

🌡️ Temperature: The 'Spider's Web' Fatsia prefers temperatures between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C). It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from freezing temperatures.

🌱 Soil: Plant the 'Spider's Web' Fatsia in well-draining, fertile soil with good moisture retention. A soil mixture rich in organic matter, such as compost or peat moss, is ideal. Ensure the soil is loose and aerated to promote healthy root growth.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed the 'Spider's Web' Fatsia with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months, as the plant's growth slows down during this time.

🔄 Pruning: Prune the 'Spider's Web' Fatsia as needed to maintain its shape and remove any dead, damaged, or yellowing foliage. Use sharp, clean pruning shears to make clean cuts, and avoid cutting into healthy green tissue.

🌸 Flowers: Fatsia 'Spider's Web' may produce small clusters of creamy-white flowers in late fall or early winter, although flowering is not the main attraction of this plant.
