Schefflera amate is commonly known as Australian Umbrella tree and is native to the tropical forests of Queensland. They are an extremely attractive tree with large, glossy leaves that will give any room a real jungle vibe. It's easy and fast growing once given the right conditions.
Your Schefflera will grow in bright indirect light or partial shade. Make sure it's sheltered from midday sun, although it will appreciate some early morning or late evening sun. They prefer a more humid spot, but are usually fine with average room humidity. Any crisping to the leaves indicates that the air is too dry. Schefflera aren't high demanders when it comes to watering. Allow half the medium to dry out on a regular basis. However, during our summer heatwaves you will find you will be watering your Schefflera more often. Over winter be mindful of any cold draughts and radiators.
All plants are sold in their nursery pots. Decorative pots are sold seperately. You can choose your style pot from the drop down menu or head over to our Pot Collection. Do not pot directly into our decorative pots. It's much better for your plant to keep it in its nursery pot to allow adequate drainage.
