This plant is easy to care for. Follow our simple instructions below, and you will have years of growth.
Where should I put this plant?
Umbrella plants can tolerate bright but indirect light, not full sun. They will also thrive in low light. Schefflera is easy: cold or warm rooms, plenty or little light, anything goes really.
How much should I water it?
Water only when the top 2 inches of soil are dry. Soak through and leave to drain, then allow to dry out before watering again.

Should I feed it?
You can feed once a month during spring and summer with liquid plant food. Try our vegan, organic plant food.
When developing our original Happy Houseplants’ Organic Tropical Plant Food, we decided not to tinker with it too much, so you'll find no chemical supplements in this 100% cruelty-free vegan product. Our indoor plant fertiliser is handmade on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, exclusively for Happy Houseplants, and has been developed by the team at Happy Houseplants and expert horticulturists with decades of experience. Many people struggle to understand how to feed houseplants, but our original vegan plant food has been designed to make feeding houseplants simple.
Our organic indoor plant food is made from Seaweed, harvested sustainably. Seaweed provides a delicate blend of growth hormones and micronutrients perfect for all indoor plants. Houseplants grow throughout spring, summer and autumn, so they will benefit from organic fertiliser during this time to encourage flowering and keep them healthy.
