Common names: schefflera 

Description: Schefflera grows tall with thick, shiny leaves. The leaflets cluster in groups of seven or eight to form an umbrella shape. They are long-lived foliage plants that can reach 8 feet or more.

Special Care: Water thoroughly when necessary but only when soil is dry. Remove excess water from trays. Remove withered leaves. Scheffleras prefer four or more hours of bright light and temperatures of 65 to 85 F/18 to 30 C but can tolerate extreme temperatures for short periods. Use all-purpose plant food according to directions.
