Extraordinarily unique, Spider’s Web Fatsia, a variety of Fatsia japonica originating from Japan, provides stunning color, contrast, and texture to any home/office. A conversation piece with its variegated, palmate, green leaves that appear to be powdered with snow, this ornamental plant will brighten any dim spot. Since this fast-growing, hardy, perennial shrub adores average temperature and humidity, maintaining Spider’s Web Fatsia is relatively easy. Just remember it tends to be shy of bright direct light so maintain this singular gem in areas of bright indirect to low light.

Best Locations For Growing Spider's Web Fatsia

Want to pick the best room to place Spider's Web Fatsia? Choose a spot with medium to low light, high humidity, and average temperatures. In particular, a good temperature range to aim for is 60°F to 80°F with cooler temperatures during the winter and warmer ones in the summer. A bathroom might be your perfect choice to maintain this lovely house plant.

Spider's Web Fatsia Sunlight Requirements

Spider's Web Fatsia prefers medium to low light. It can withstand bright light if the plant is positioned several feet away from any windows. This hardy shrub is susceptible to sunburn so it must be kept away from bright direct light, especially intense afternoon sun. A room with an east-facing or north-facing window would be a great choice for this evergreen shrub’s penchant for lower light. 

Spider's Web Fatsia Care

Start your Spider's Web Fatsia in a 10-inch pot filled with loamy, acidic to neutral, and well-draining soil. To make your own potting mix for this particular cultivar, amend a good house plant potting with peat moss and perlite/coco coir. This mix will help prevent fungal disease such as root-rot. 

This fast-growing perennial can grow up to 8 feet, so if you prefer a shorter plant, you can prune it to size. For bushier growth, you can pinch your plant at the growth tips. Repot once every year by transplanting Spider's Web Fatsia into a new container that is one to two inches bigger than the old pot. 

Watering Spider's Web Fatsia

Spider's Web Fatsia thrives in consistently moist soil; conduct a moisture check prior to watering, and water when the top 1 to 2 inches of soil are dry. 

Feeding Spider's Web Fatsia

During this plant’s growing season, feed your Spider’s Web Fatsia a balanced fertilizer monthly. During the autumn and winter months, this shrub will be semi-dormant and will not require feeding.
