The glossy China Doll Plant seems unsure if it wants to be a touchy tropical houseplant or a robust and fast-growing outdoor tree – because it’s both. Though it’s known for dropping leaves easily, the plant will thrive indoors with regular pruning and proper care.
China Doll plants don’t need anything fancy, though. A quality retail potting soil is fine. A mix with peat moss is usually suitable … if the medium needs more drainage, add perlite, coarse sand, or another aerating amendment.
