Schefflera houseplants, are often called Umbrella Trees because of their large, shiny, dark green leaves that drape down like the spokes of an umbrella. Each Schefflera leaf grows at the end of a long stem and consists of several smaller leaflets. Schefflera Plants usually have multiple trunks. The newer Amate variety of the Schefflera Plant, which is grown from a tissue culture, has larger glossier leaves.
Potting Soil Mix
Every 12-13 Month
1. Schefflera houseplants do well in medium light, but grow faster and develop more leaves in bright indirect light.
2. Use a well-aerated fast-draining indoor potting soil for Schefflera houseplants.
3. Allow the top 25-30% of the soil to dry out before watering Schefflera houseplants.
4. Fertilize Schefflera houseplants monthly in the spring and summer when they are actively growing with a basic houseplant food.
5. If a Schefflera Plant loses its bottom leaves or becomes leggy looking, don't be afraid to aggressively prune the plant.
1. Remove Air Toxins
2. Great for Indoor Decor
1. When cutting back the thick stems or trunks of a Schefflera houseplant, make the cut a little above a plant node. New growth develops from the node.
2. During the fall and winter feed Schefflera plants every other month but only if the plant is producing new leaves.
3. Green leaves drop off and new growth turns black when Schefflera Plants are over-watered. Yellow leaves indicate a Schefflera houseplant is being under-watered.
1. Do not leave the soil dry for too long or allow your Schefflera to sit in water which could lead to many performance problems for your plant.
2. Avoid cold and overwatering
