the umbrella tree
Schefflera is one of our go-to plants when you want to add some height to a space. You can even use in a footed stand or pot or on a table to give it extra stature. The long leaves on this lush plant hang down to form the shape of an umbrella. And this umbrella looks and feels at home indoors.
Yours will do best in bright, indirect light with moist soil that dries slightly between waterings. We like to use our moisture meter to keep us on track and/or mist occasionally to provide the humidity Schefflera loves. Ours looks best when we feed with Jack’s Houseplant food during the growing season through spring and summer.
