Schefflera arboricola, commonly called umbrella plant or dwarf schefflera, is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows in tropical climates to 10-25' tall. It is native to Taiwan. In the wild, it sometimes grows on other trees as an epiphyte.
Schefflera plants prefer medium-light, meaning they should be kept in bright light, but the light should not be direct. The Schefflera plant should be fertilized in the spring and fall, 1-2 times per week. After repotting, wait approximately eight weeks to begin fertilization.
