This umbrella tree is a great easy care houseplant. Great of new plant parents.
It is a Schefflera and will adapt to almost any indoor growing conditions. However, they will grow best in in direct light with moderate humidity, and warm, consistent temperatures.
Given their easy going nature, they are great as office plants.
TIP: If you schefflera plant becomes leggy or floppy it might be due to it not receiving enough light. Never place a schefflera houseplant in direct, full sun because intense sun can burn the leaves.
Water weekly during the growing season and spray the leaves frequently. You can wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then thoroughly soak the soil when you water. Cut back on water during winter. Often, people will overwater their schefflera plant and doing so will eventually kill it. Yellow and dropped leaves is a sign that you might be watering too much.
Delivered in 8.5cm plastic nursery pot.
Not pet safe.
