Schefflera Arboricola (Dwarf) – UMBRELLA TREE
Native to Taiwan the Dwarf Umbrella plant has beautiful foliage that has long oval shaped lush, glossy leaflets on each stem, arranged in a circular or umbrella shape.
This evergreen shrub is a popular houseplant because it's not an overly picky plant and can tolerate some neglect and a variety of home conditions.
Plant Care Tips
LIGHT: Although the Dwarf Umbrella doesn't like full sun, it does require a well lit room.
WATER: Like most houseplants, the Dwarf Umbrella doesn’t like to be kept consistently moist. Overwatering will lead to root rot so keep the watering consistent but do allow the top layer of soil to start to dry between watering.
GROWTH HABIT: Pruning and trimming can keep the tree at the size and shape you prefer.
SIZE: Even this Dwarf Umbrella plant can eventually grow into about a 10 foot tree outside, but can be easily held back indoors while in a pot.
