Schefflera arboricola 'Moondrop'
Schefflera arboricola 'Moondrop' is a variegated cultivar of the Dwarf Umbrella Tree, named for 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.
This variety, 'Moondrop', has beautiful patches of white variegation that outline most of the leaves, with occasional leaves emerging entirely white. The contrasting colors on the leaves are mesmerizing!
• 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

I was so skeptical of buying plants from an online nursery, not being able to pick my new plant baby and hoping it makes it through shipping okay, but my moondrop arrived unscathed and healthy! I couldn’t have picked a happier, healthy plant if I walked around a nursery myself. She even has new leaves coming in already! Her leaves are mainly green right now, so I’m excited to see her grow and get some white patches!
This one came well wrapped and in great shape - lots of new growth.
