This species is relatively new to the indoor plant selection, having been introduced in the early 1980s from Taiwan, and owes its popularity to its tolerance of dry, centrally-heated air. It is an evergreen shrub with larges graceful, compound leaves, up to 30 in. (75 cm) long, with glossy, deeply-veined leaflets. The fragrant, deep yellow flowers are produced only on mature plants. It is ideal for creating a softening effect in a large arrangement or for framing flowering plants.
Size: Height 3 ft. (1 m).
Light: Indirect sunlight.
Temperature: Normal room.
Moisture: Keep moist at all times.
Feeding: Use standard liquid fertilizer every two weeks from spring to fall.
Propagation: Take 4 in. (10 cm) tip cuttings in spring or summer.
Special needs: Do not allow soil to become waterlogged or to dry out, because both will cause the lower leaves to drop prematurely.
