Care

General Maintenance: These plants do have the potential to be propagated by cuttings, but it can be a more complicated procedure than other tropical plants. Pruning can be done if your plant is exceptionally leggy or overgrown. These plants are prone to aphids, so be wary. 

Temperature: This plant will begin to lose its leaves if it is exposed to temperatures below 15° Celsius, or if exposed to sudden drafts or very dry heating vents. 

Light: These plants prefer bright, indirect light. A plant that begins to get droopy or leggy often means it is not getting enough light. 

Watering: Water regularly, ensuring the soil is evenly moist but not waterlogged. Mist the leaves regularly. If the plant begins to yellow or drop leaves you are likely overwatering. 

Soil: Prefers a rich, slightly acidic soil. 

Fertilizer: Feed your Schefflera once or twice a week with a liquid based fertilizer during the spring and summer. These are heavy feeder plants that will benefit from the nutrients.
