INDOOR PLANT - Dwarf Umbrella Tree in 12cm and 18cm pots
Looking for a compact, low maintenance, tropical-looking indoor plant for your home or office? Then these adorable dwarf umbrella trees might be for you.
Taking its name from the charming shape of its foliage, the umbrella plant gains its popularity because of being very adaptable to growing in different types of conditions, and being super low maintenance.
Scientifically known as Schefflera Arboricola, it’s more commonly called as an umbrella tree. This is the dwarf variety, which as the name suggests will remain more compact - expect your plant to grow on average to a height of just under a meter.
In good growing conditions an umbrella tree will flower. It is native to Taiwan and will make a lovely addition to your plant family - perfect as a gift to a first time plant owner or great for an office space.
Bright natural light. Too much direct light will cause those lush green leaves to crisp up and conversely too much shade will cause the foliage to turn yellow and droopy.
The umbrella tree isn't too high maintenance with its watering requirements. It can withstand some neglect - when the leaves being to wilt and wrinkle you will know its been neglect too long and its time for some attention! We don't advocate neglecting this beauty though! Keep a watering schedule that allows the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. A full wetting of all the soil every 2-3 weeks during the growing season (less in winter) is best to ensure all the roots can access moisture.
