Great beginner plant with beautiful bursts of leaves

The Schefflera is an easy to care for variety of house plant that's great for beginners. An upright plant with great foliage; stems will shoot off the main stalk with a grouping of leaves at each end. Each group of leaves will droop and fan out like an umbrella giving the Schefflera the common name of umbrella plant. You can tell the maturity of these species by the number of leaves on each stem, with mature plants having 12 to 16 leaves on each! Umbrella plants only require indirect light, though these variegated types may need a little more. They are toxic when ingested so should be kept out of reach of pets and small children but their easy care makes them ideal for office spaces. This 5L potted variety has multiple stems to provide extra dense foliage.

We believe that anyone, regardless of ability can successfully grow their own plants at home, and do so in an eco-friendly and sustainable way.

Everyone should have the chance to experience the benefits that plants bring to our lives, and we have put a lot of effort into making sure that all of our products are easy to grow, even for beginners.

Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds or ethically sourced compost.

The Schefflera is very easy to care for and is robust in its ability to survive. It only needs indirect light to survive, though a variegated variety may need a little more light to keep its colouring. You'll know it needs more light if the leaves look too floppy.

Water weekly through the summer and increase humidity by spraying the leaves. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot.

Leaves that yellow and fall off are a sign of overwating so simply cut back if this is the case. The plant will bounce back easily if you leave to dry between waterings.
