Schefflera arboricola - Dwarf Umbrella Tree
Schefflera arboricola is often called the Dwarf Umbrella Tree because its glossy, palmate leaves are delightfully petite, in the classic umbrella-like shape. Native to Taiwan and Hainan, this evergreen shrub stays much smaller than some other members of the Schefflera genus, but can still grow to impressive proportions indoors, with an upright but full growth habit. Its deep green foliage contrasts beautifully with a wide variety of decor styles, making this one of our go-to indoor trees.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: If the plant becomes leggy, increase its light. Take care not to over-water

What totally blows me away is - because of how carefully and oh-so-tenderly Pistils packages every single plant that they send out - not one arrive damaged or starving for water. And this pretty Umbrella Plant was no exception. Arriving with a really healthy root system (and like a bazillion leaves!) she's already a joy to raise ~ Thank you Pistils!
Great experience with my first order from Pistils. Plants arrived in perfect condition. Great prices. Super happy to support this local PNW business.
