Schefflera Tips and Care

The Schefflera is a popular houseplant. There is one big leaf variety called ‘Amate’ and several smaller leafed varieties, some green and a couple variegated. They come in bush form or tree form. Some trees have braided trunks, which are very attractive.

All Scheffs like bright indirect light. Direct sun, coming through a window, will burn the leaves rather quickly. They will not tolerate a low light situation.

Water well and allow the plant to dry slightly before the next watering. If you see leaves turning black and dropping off it's a good signal that the soil is staying too wet or moist. On the flip side the leaf tips wrinkle if they are too dry. 

Fertilize regularly during the growing season, allowing them to rest in the winter. Use a general houseplant fertilizer, following the directions on the package.
