We adore the twisted, knotted trunk of this beautiful Umbrella Plant. The Umbrella Plantis a wonderfully simple-to-manage pot of style that adds a touch of the rainforest to any room in your home. Otherwise known as the Umbrella tree plant, the variety we offer has an interestingly gnarled and braided trunk.
Emerald green leaves form clusters almost like umbrellas - hence the name! We love the braided trunk - imagine it in its natural rainforest surroundings, it has real personality and will add interest to any sitting room or really anywhere you choose to put it.
Umbrella plant care is really easy which is why it makes a great plant if you’re not used to houseplants. The main things are to make sure you don’t overwater and to put it in indirect light so that the leaves don’t shrivel and burn. It will also tolerate low light - in fact, we find that they grow more slowly and become leggy in low light, which is actually a great look!
The Umbrella Plant or Schefflera plant makes a wonderful indoor plant gift. We’ll even deliver it along with a free handwritten card - just include your gift message at the basket stage of the checkout and we’ll do the rest. We won’t include any telltale paperwork either!
