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.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
