10" Umbrella Plant
Schefflera prefer bright, indirect light. In the summer, move it outside if possible under a shady overhang. A schefflera plant that gets leggy or floppy might not be getting enough light. Never place a schefflera houseplant in direct, full sun as this will burn the leaves.
Water weekly during the growing season and spray the leaves frequently. You can wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then thoroughly soak the soil when you water. Cut back on water during winter. Often, people will overwater their schefflera plant and this will eventually kill it. Yellow leaves that fall off the plant is a sign that you may be watering too much.
As it is a tropical plant, schefflera appreciates a lot of humidity and tropical temperatures; it will suffer in temperatures less than 60 degrees. Do not expose these plants to drafts or dry heating vents. An underwatered or cold schefflera will begin to drop leaves quickly, so take leaf-drop seriously and correct the issue. If you lose all the leaves but you want to save the plant, move it outside in the spring, and give it lots of water.
