Schefflera actinophylla 'Amate'

Schefflera Amate - Umbrella Tree (S)


The Umbrella Tree is a popular indoor plant with glossy oval shaped leaves that will grow to a few inches long and wide. The foliage will then display in sets of 4-12 leaflets giving it an umbrella appearance. When grown in warmer climates outdoors the Umbrella Plant produces bright tentacle like red flowers on long stems hence its common name Octopus Tree.


Best in warm indirect light. Allow soil to completely dry out between watering. Do not water if the top half of the potting medium is still moist. Prune to support new growth and a bushier appearance and rotate periodically for even growth. Wipe dust from leaves regularly.
