Description

The Schefflera Arboricola Trinette 'Dwarf Umbrella Tree' is a popular and hardy house plant that can adapt to most growing conditions. While it’s full-sized sister can grow up to 15 feet indoors, this variety usually tops out around 6’ and is a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts due to it’s compact growth pattern that also makes it ideal for a small space. It has two varieties of color, one being a pure green with a dark and lush hue (perfect for a jungle vibe), and the other a variegated pigmentation with creamy white or yellow tinges. This plant prefers bright, even direct light indoors and will love you if you place it outside in the warmer months, just be careful not to burn the leaves and bring it in before the temperature drops as these tropical plants are cold sensitive. Keep the soil moist but not overly saturated, do your best to keep humidity levels around it at about 60%, and rotate periodically for best growth
