The Umbrella Plant, also known as Schefflera arboricola, is an easy-care houseplant that adds a unique touch to your indoor plant collection and typically grows up to 40cm on a lava rock.
Schefflera arboricola is a small shrubby plant originating from Eastern China and Taiwan. It is an erect, well-branched shrub or tree with palmate, glossy foliage. A “parasol” of seven or more leaflets radiates from each leaf stalk. The plant can either be free-standing , or grow as an epiphyte or lithophyte – starting life in the branches of another tree or in a rock crevice. In those conditions, the plan will produce aerial roots that will grip to its support and head to the ground, where they will then produce conventional roots. This habit makes them ideal to grow on small lava rocks where they can grow into unusual houseplant displays.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
