The Q&A Archives: Looking for houseplant I don't know the name of

Question: I bought this plant in Orlando and had it for many years. It has many stems coming out of the soil, and mine got rather large, each stem independent of the others, and the leaves are slim and lacey.
I cannot remember the name of the nursery I found it in and I want one very much. Could you help. I thought it was air something, and I saw a name, no picture as I would know it if I could see a picture, thename is areira; but, had not picture attached so don't know if this is it or not. Thank you for your assistance.

Answer: Gerrie,

Actually your description could be for one of several different plants. The one that I would guess first is false aralia. Here is a website so you can see a photo and know whether that is your mystery plant:

False aralia

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
