For obvious reasons the Schefflera is often called an umbrella plant. Its broad leaves are so comforting on a rainy day.
They will work great as a floor plant in your home.
Light: Bright indirect light
Water: Water when the top-inch of soil is dry and then remove any excess standing water after about 15 minutes to help prevent rotting the roots over time.
Your Schefflera's large leaves will accumulate dust overtime, which interferes with the flow of carbon dixoide into the plant and the resulting outflow of oxygen into the room. Clean the leaves by placing one hand under the leaf and with your other hand gently wipe the surface using a damp microfiber cloth. Keeping your plant regularly free of dust as part of your plant care routine is not only great for the plant, but also for you!
