Schefflera are delightful plants that are easy to care for and forgiving of mistakes, making them ideal for new plant parents or ones with busy lives!
The plant will grow straight up, but continue to put out its signature thin stems with those clusters of leaves at the end. If allowed to, these plants can grow reasonably tall - they also respond well to being made into bonsai!
Lighting: Bright, indirect light.
Water: Water once the soil is nearly all the way dry with purified water or water that you have allowed to set out overnight (to let the chlorine and fluoride evaporate off).
Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.
Temperature: Room temp (60-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
Toxicity: Unsafe for consumption in pets and humans.
