Below is a general care guide for Aceraceae plants which can slightly differ depending on variety. 

Light & Temperature

Most maples thrive in full to partial sunlight and prefer moderate temperatures. However, specific light and temperature requirements can vary by species.

Watering, Humidity & Misting

Adequate watering is important, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Humidity is generally not a significant concern for outdoor maple trees, but indoor potted maples may benefit from occasional misting.

Soil and Repotting

Plant maples in well-draining soil, preferably a mix of loam and organic matter. Container-grown maples should be repotted every 2-3 years.


Propagation of maples is commonly achieved through seeds or stem cuttings, usually during the warmer months for optimal success.


Maples benefit from a balanced, slow-release fertilizer applied in early spring before new growth emerges. Be cautious not to over-fertilize, as this can harm the plant.


Maples are not considered toxic to humans or pets.

Possible Issues

Common issues may include pests like scale insects and aphids, as well as diseases such as powdery mildew. Additionally, improper watering and inadequate light can lead to leaf browning and diminished overall health.
