Schefflera Arboricola * Dwarf Umbrella * Bonsai Tree * Rare * 20 Seeds *

THIS LISTING IS FOR 20 SEEDS OF SCHEFFLERA ARBORICOLA Schefflera arboricola is a flowering plant in the family Araliaceae, native to Taiwan as well as Hainan. The dwarf umbrella tree, schefflera arboricola, appears to be a smaller version of the umbrella tree, Schefflera actinophylla. It is an evergreen shrub growing to 8–9 m tall, free-standing, or clinging to the trunks of other trees. It is commonly grown as a houseplant, popular for its tolerance of neglect and poor growing conditions. It is also grown as a landscape plant in milder climates where frosts are not severe. Winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-12 where it is best grown in bright part shade locations. Outdoors, it tolerates full sun, but generally appreciates protection from direct sun during the heat of the day. It also tolerates bright shade. In St. Louis, it is easily grown as a houseplant in warm, humidified areas. Plants should be grown in containers filled with a peaty well-drained soil mix. Water regularly but moderately during the growing season. Avoid overwatering. Best to deeply water and then allow soils to nearly dry before applying an additional deep watering. Reduce watering somewhat from fall to late winter. Plants may be taken outdoors to sheltered locations in summer. Indoor plants are best placed in bright light at east, west or southern windows in curtain filtered sun (3-4 hours per day). Avoid direct sun. Indoor temperatures should not dip below 60 degrees F. in winter. Clean leaves as needed with a damp sponge to maintain best foliage appearance. To increase humidity, mist foliage with water and/or place containers on a tray of wet pebbles. Prune to control size.
