[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The lacy juvenile leaves of false aralia are made up of 7 to
10 slender, jagged leaflets arranged like fingers of a hand (Fig.
1). They are coppery in color when they unfold but then
become a very dark grey-green. The mature foliage looks
entirely different and is heavier with broader leaflets, giving a
coarser silhouette. Both types of leaves can be present on the
plant at the same time.

Olá Raimundo,
Muy bonita la composición que ha hecho, me gusta ese minimalismo, donde solo se destaca la hoja.
