Schefflera, also known as the umbrella tree, is a popular houseplant that is relatively easy to care for. Here are some tips for caring for your schefflera:
Light: Schefflera prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves. If your plant starts to get leggy, it may need more light.
Water: Water your schefflera when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Don't let the soil completely dry out, but be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. In general, it's better to underwater than overwater.
Humidity: Schefflera likes moderately humid environments, but it can tolerate lower humidity as well. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a tray of water near the plant.
Temperature: Schefflera prefers temperatures between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. It can tolerate slightly cooler or warmer temperatures, but avoid exposing it to temperatures below 50 degrees or above 90 degrees.
Fertilizer: Feed your schefflera with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize in the winter.
Pruning: Prune your schefflera to control its size and shape, and to remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems. You can also propagate your schefflera by taking stem cuttings and rooting them in water or soil.
Overall, schefflera is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a tropical feel to your home. With proper care, it can thrive for many years.
