More Details

The Umbrella Tree, scientifically known as Schefflera Amate, is an evergreen plant renowned for its glossy, dark green palmate leaves which are grouped in sets, resembling the spokes of an umbrella, hence its common name. It possesses an upright growth habit and can become quite tall when left unchecked.

Growth rate: Moderate to fast. In ideal settings, it can add several inches to its height annually. Reaches 6-8 ft tall and 3-5 ft wide at maturity.

Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Typically, water it every 1-2 weeks. Ensure the plant is potted in well-draining soil and that excess water can escape the pot.

Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate some direct sun, prolonged exposure can cause the leaves to scorch. Conversely, too little light may lead to leggy growth and fewer leaves.
