Umbrella Plants: everything you need to know

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.
