Schefflera Arboricola (Umbrella plant), with its beautiful solid green leaves can be used as a table plant or floor plant at home or office or even as a bonsai plant.
The more light Schefflera receives, the faster it grows. Schefflera Gold requires even more light than Arboricola. But as for all the indoor plants, direct sun light burns the leaves.
Water it when 1/3 of the soil is dry. If you see the leaves black, it is over-watered. If you see them bright yellow, is needs more water.
Schefflera prefers small pots and to be root-bounded.
