Umbrella Tree - Schefflera actinophylla 'Amate'

Checking local availability


  • Likes bright indirect light - can tolerate lower light but growth will be slower and leggier.
  • Rotate the plant occasionally to get it to grow more upright otherwise, it will lean towards the light.
  • Water when the top inches of soil are dry - easier to over rather than underwater so if unsure err on the dry side.
  • Prune back any growth that looks a bit leggy to encourage fuller new growth.
  • Can benefit from fertilising in the growing season.
  • Toxic to pets.
