Schefflera (Umbrella Tree) Mix in 13cm Pot
€9.99 “Price excl. VAT: €8.80”
Native to warmer regions of the globe, Schefflera are tropical evergreen plants that add a lively splash of colour to any home they’re located in, all through the year. Their main selling points are their broad-leaved foliage, which radiates out from the central stem in an umbrella-like fashion, giving them their moniker. Although they do produce impressive blossoms in their natural habitat, you’re unlikely to reproduce similar results in Ireland.
Light: Schefflera plants are best placed in bright indirect sunlight, although they can tolerate a little direct sun and some shade. Turn your Schefflera plant regularly to ensure even growth. If your plant has leggy shoots, it probably isn’t getting enough light.
Soil/Fertiliser: Schefflera plants need nutrient-rich soil with good drainage. Any well-draining potting mix will suffice. Use a liquid fertiliser occasionally during the growing season (May to August).
Water: The Schefflera plants likes moist soil so top yours up when the top of the soil is dry. Make sure it doesn’t sit in standing water and reduce watering in the winter months. Yellow or dropping leaves can indicate overwatering.
Humidity: Due to their tropical origins, Schefflera plants like warm and humid conditions and are well suited to a bathroom or kitchen. Avoid exposing your Schefflera plants to cold or dry conditions and consider increasing humidity by misting your plant, especially if you are using heating or air conditioning.
Pruning: Prune any leggy or unwanted growth during the Spring and Summer months to encourage new growth.
