Hello anyone!
I have an aralia Fabian stump and it had some issues that have since been corrected so now I'm left with my beautiful prized baby that has a long recovery ahead. I have great new growth and it seems to be stable now for the most part, except for one of the wooded stems is shriveling? I guess, when you touch it, it isn't mushy but you can tell that the inside is separating from the outer bark and so I thought I'd just wait and watch it a bit but my fears have been confirmed & I'm sure that it is slowly spreading downward. So should I cut it off and I'm not sure exactly on how I should do it, also if I should go get the black sealant for pruning trees and dip the cut end when I'm done? As well as is it dying back because of the previous trauma it went through or are there any other warning signs I should be watching out for in the meantime. As I have already found out the hard way that they are not the easiest plant and kinda go against typical house plant signs when they go down, they go fast. Im grateful to have caught it in time to save him. Any advice would be ever so greatly appreciated. Thank You, RebekahJ

I would remove any dead or dieing wood to keep it growing. Use your thumb nail and scratch the bark and see if you hit green in not cut it off.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Make sure your Aralia is close to a moderately sunny window. The moisture meter may be misleading you. Allow the top half-inch of soil to get dry to your touch before watering it, regardless of what the meter reads.
