Get to Know Umbrella Plant!


Schefflera arboricola (sometimes called dwarf Schefflera) features smaller, glossy leaves, sometimes with creamy variegation. Umbrella plants are not difficult plants to grow if they receive plenty of indirect light, warmth, and humidity. In very cold climates, bottom heat might be necessary. Leggy plants can be pruned to encourage a fuller plant.


Water your Schefflera when the top 75% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.


Your Schefflera Arboricola prefers bright indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions as well. Rotate your plant a half-turn once a month. As it grows, it leans towards the light, so this will keep it looking full and even.


No! This plant is not pet friendly.

If the leaves are cut open, the sap inside can cause minor skin irritation. Wear gloves when pruning or repotting your plant to be safe. If ingested, it can cause mouth and digestive irritation.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

The most common cause of an Umbrella Plant drooping is overwatering, resulting in root rot. Signs of this include yellow lower leaves, poorly draining soil and an offensive smell from the soil. Other causes of drooping include cold stress, transplant shock, underwatering, or overfertilizing.
