Availability: In Stock

Schefflera species are wonderfully tropical plants. The larger Schefflera (sometimes called the umbrella plant) features long, shiny, oval green leaves that droop gracefully from a central stalk. A mature Schefflera might have 12 or 16 leaflets from a single stalk, while an immature Schefflera is more likely to have 4 or 6. Schefflera arboricola (sometimes called dwarf Schefflera) features smaller, glossy leaves, sometimes with creamy variegation. Schefflera will thrive alongside your other tropical plants. Sadly, Schefflera is unlikely to bloom inside, so you’ll miss the long, red tentacles that pass for flowers.

Grower’s Tips
Schefflera are not difficult plants to grow, providing you supply plenty of indirect light, warmth, and humidity. In very cold climes, bottom heat might be necessary. Leggy Schefflera can be pruned to encourage a more full plant. An underwatered, cold Schefflera will begin to drop leaves quickly, so take leaf-drop seriously and move to correct the problem. If you lose all the leaves, but you want to save the plant, move it outside in the spring, give it lots of water, and it should leaf back out.

Water: Water when soil is dry to the touch, which is approximately every 7 – 10 days. Avoid water daily. Water them more in spring and summer and less in winter, and it’s better to underwater them than overwater them.

Initial Planting And Care

“Initial care for 1-2 weeks after receiving plant at your location:

Do not re-pot for min. 2 weeks after receiving it.

Standard Gardening Guide

1. Plant Watering Guide
 First, check the moisture in the soil by following below steps
 a. Poke your finger or plain small stick in the soil
 b. Check the moisture that you feel on a finger or on the stick
 If soil is muddy: No water required. Check moisture after 2-3 days.
 If the soil feels a little moist: No water is required. Check moisture the next day.
 If soil is completely dry: Apply water thoroughly till the water comes out of drainage holes. Make sure that the water is not standing in the pot. Soil should be well-drained. 
As a  rule of thumb, plants need more water in the summer season and less water in the winter and rainy seasons.

2. Plant Light Requirement Guide
Direct Sunlight: Area with as much direct sunlight light as possible.
Indirect light with some direct sunlight: Brightly lit, with some sunlight falling on the leaves during the day (Especially the morning direct sunlight)
Indirect Bright Light: Brightly lit but not with direct sunlight falling on the leaves. It is the light near a window or door. Many foliage house plants will flourish in this light.
Low light: Moderately lit, with no direct sunlight falling on the leaves. A person can read a book in this light.
Very low light: Poorly lit, a person will not be able to read a book in this light.

 Tips:
1) Lighting is not just about providing brightness to the plant. It is the duration of light and its intensity that decides the growth of the plant.
2) There should be at 12-14 hours of required light that may be natural or artificial in order to maintain active plant growth whereas the light intensity varies greatly from plant to plant.
3) When using artificial lights; try to use LED lights or fluorescent tubes to minimize the effect of heat on the plants. The ideal distance between an artificial light source and plant is 1 ft.
