Looking for a beautiful, easy house plant? Here is everything you need to know about Umbrella plants!
I love an Umbrella plant (scientific name: schefflera). These tropical plants are really small trees with clusters of 8 leaves.
They have a tropical look, mixed with a tree aesthetic, which makes them an interesting addition to any houseplant collection.
Plus, they are super easy to care for.
Umbrella plants like bright indirect light, regular watering, and don’t mind being fertilized in the summer.
These plants are very beginner friendly and propagate easily, too.
