Native to the shady undersides of the rainforest canopies in Australia and New Guinea, the Schefflera Amate (Schefflera actinophylla) is a fast growing, tropical, and lush tree that can grow up to 65 feet tall in its natural environment! Also known as the Umbrella Tree for its beautiful leaf structure, its bright glossy green leaves add warmth and a touch of the tropics to any space.
The Schefflera has adapted well to indoor environments and can survive in medium light spaces, making it a showstopping option for spaces other large plants may struggle in, such as ficus. Place your Schefflera where it will receive medium to bright indirect light such as in a Northern or Eastern facing Window. If your window faces South or West, then it’s best to place it 5-10ft from the window in order to prevent leaf burn.
