Schefflera arboricola are fantastic houseplants with beautiful foliage. They are not difficult to look after and will tolerate some neglect as well as help clean the surrounding air.
Also known as the Parasol Plant, Schefflera arboricola Gold Capella has green, glossy palm-like leaves, oval in shape with irregular splashes of gold, yellow and pale green variegation. They are fast growing, but are readily trimmed into shape, making them adaptable as small, compact plants displayed on a table through to tall, specimen floor plants.
Please note: Schefflera are prone to stress after a change in location and leaf drop is common. Your plant should stabilise within a few months.
Prune back if the plant becomes leggy or too tall. Pinch out new growth if you want to keep the plant small and compact.
Wipe leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove dust and keep your Dwarf Umbrella looking fresh and feeling fine.
Got cold feet? Revive using use room temperature water when it needs a drink as the root system can be susceptible to cold water shock causing rapid leaf loss.
