Plant Details

The dwarf umbrella tree is native to Taiwan, and a mini cousin to the Schefflera Amate. The Schefflera arboricola is often used for Bonsai, however we love its untamed and wild shape. Little tufts of five leave clusters offer a lush and full shape, but its best feature by far is its tolerance for medium light and little water. This plant does best placed in medium to bright indirect light, and likes a moderate to low amount of water.

Product Overview

  • Light Requirements

    This is a medium light plant. It will do best in a bright location with mostly indirect light. This would be directly in front of a North or East facing window. It will also thrive 5ft-10ft removed from a West or South facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for an indoor plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Schefflera like dry soil and will rot when too much moisture is present. When the soil is dry …" of the way through the pot, then the plant is ready to be watered. In lower light conditions, be sure to water more sparingly. 

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Medium humidity. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts. The Schefflera appreciates an occasional misting. 

    BENEFITS: LARGE IMPACT & LOW MAINTENANCE
    Schefflera trees are large and full, so when looking for a medium light tolerant plant with a big presence, the Schefflera is the way to go. Their ability to thrive in lower light spaces, and preference for periods of drought make them a great low maintenance option.
