    • Tetrapanax papyrifer rex, also known as the Rice Paper Plant, is a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia that can be grown in the UK as an outdoor plant. Here are some care instructions for keeping it healthy:

    • Soil: Tetrapanax papyrifer rex prefers well-draining, fertile soil that is rich in organic matter. Make sure the soil is not waterlogged or too dry.

    • Watering: This plant needs regular watering, especially during dry spells. Water it deeply once or twice a week, depending on the weather and the moisture levels of the soil.

    • Sunlight: Tetrapanax papyrifer rex prefers partial shade to full sun. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves.

    • Temperature: This plant is hardy in the UK, but it may need protection during harsh winters. Mulch the base of the plant to protect the roots and cover it with horticultural fleece if necessary.

    • Fertilizer: Tetrapanax papyrifer rex benefits from regular fertilization with a balanced fertilizer. Apply it during the growing season, following the manufacturer's instructions.

    • Pruning: This plant can grow very tall and wide, so it may need pruning to keep it in shape. Prune in late winter or early spring, before new growth appears.
