Schefflera Care

Schefflera Care

Schefflera's are a flowering plant in the family Araliaceae, native to Taiwan as well as Hainan. Its common name is dwarf umbrella tree, as it appears to be a smaller version of the umbrella tree.

Lighting: Schefflera is an easy-to-grow houseplant that does best in high light but will usually grow fine in medium light. It can tolerate direct sun on its leaves indoors, even in hot-summer climates.

Water: Water Schefflera when the top of the potting mix dries out. Its tolerance of dry soil is one of the factors that has made it a popular indoor plant for so long.

Temperature: Schefflera houseplants prefer temperatures between 65°-80°. They do not do well in temperatures below 55°. Keep schefflera's away from cold drafts and heaters.

I just received my order for 2 4" Schefflera plants (dwarf umbrella tree) and they were packaged very well. I have been growing plants both indoors and outdoors for 50 yrs. and I usually do not order plants online but decided to take a chance with these (from Amazon website). Thank you for excellent packaging and I have placed both plants in one larger pot and they look great. I will definitely purchase from your website. Thank you!!
