Care instructions
Your schefflera may also need to be pruned occasionally, especially if it is not getting quite enough light. Pruning a schefflera is simple. Just cut off what you feel is overgrown or leggy back to a size or shape you like. Schefflera houseplants rebound quickly from pruning and will look even fuller and more lush shortly after pruning.
Colour of foliage
Yellow-green coloured
Planting instructions
Repot the plants annually as needed. A mature schefflera can grow into a small tree up to 12 or even 15 feet tall. However, it is more likely that an indoor plant in a temperate climate will stop growing around six feet. Slow the growth rate by prolonging repotting.
Rate of growth
Soil type
Plant schefflera in a rich, loose potting media with moist compost. You can try a well-draining sandy loam soil with an acidic to slightly alkaline pH. Avoid planting in a location where the soil becomes too wet or waterlogged.
Watering instructions
When growing schefflera, be aware that watering correctly will help to keep your schefflera houseplant healthy. To water correctly, wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then thoroughly soak the soil when you water. Often, people will over water 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.

Safety information
Schefflera plants are poisonous to people and animals, if eaten. It is not often fatal but will cause a burning sensation, swelling, difficulty swallowing, and in severe cases, difficult breathing.
Pot size
Room temperature
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.
Room position
Schefflera plants are medium light plants, which means that they need bright but indirect light. A common complaint about schefflera plants is that they get leggy and floppy. This problem is caused by too little light. Making sure that you are growing schefflera in the right kind of light will help prevent leggy growth. On the other side, you do not want to place a schefflera houseplant in direct, bright light, as this will burn the leaves.
