2 in stock


Selling size: Single plant  | Pot included

The dwarf umbrella tree is native to Taiwan, and a mini cousin to the Schefflera Amate. The Schefflera arboricola is often used for Bonsai, however we love its untamed and wild shape. Little tufts of five leaf clusters offer a lush and full shape, but its best feature by far is its tolerance for medium light and little water. This plant does best placed in medium to bright indirect light, and likes a moderate to low amount of water.

This Mini Arboricola is like a miniature umbrella market or collection of canopies. This effect is created by numerous branches from which small, long leaves emerge in a circle at the top. Many of these branches create layers of circular foliage that break up the light and make shadows dance. The Mini Arboricola Umbrella Plant is a compact variety of schefflera perfect for most well-lit interiors. With the proper care, this miniature houseplant can cover a lot of visual ground. This plant is toxic if ingested. Keep away from pets and small children. It may also cause skin irritation.
