AED 65.00

Schefflera Arboricola houseplant is a popular plant and comes in many varieties. The most well known are the umbrella tree and the dwarf umbrella tree. One of the reasons the plant is popular is because schefflera plant care is so easy, but, while schefflera care is easy, the plant does need to be cared for. Keep reading to learn more about growing schefflera and keeping it healthy and lush. Schefflera Plant Care Instructions There are two very important parts to proper schefflera care. The first is correct sunlight and the second is proper watering.

Fittonia plant is an evergreen perennial flowering plant belonging to the Acanthaceae family.  Its striking feature is its patterned foliage, with a network of veins picked out in a different color from the oval leaves. You can choose from several vibrant color schemes, including green and white, green and pink, orange and pink, and even an almost day-glo lime with electric pink. Fittonia forms a compact mound with a slowly spreading habit, making it an attractive specimen plant for indoor spaces. While it rarely flowers indoors, many growers pinch out the dainty pale flower spikes to encourage energy focus on leaf growth. Fittonia originates from the forest floor of tropical South America.

The first is correct sunlight and the second is proper watering.

Light – Schefflera plants are medium light plants, which means that they need bright but indirect light. A common complaint about schefflera plants is that they get leggy and floppy. This problem is caused by too little light. Making sure that you are growing schefflera in the right kind of light will help prevent leggy growth. On the other side, you do not want to place a schefflera houseplant in direct, bright light, as this will burn the leaves.

Water – When growing schefflera, be aware that watering correctly will help to keep your schefflera houseplant healthy. To water correctly, wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then thoroughly soak the soil when you water. Often people will overwater their schefflera plant and this will eventually kill it. Yellow leaves that fall off the plant is a sign that you may be watering too much. Additional care of schefflera includes pruning and fertilization.

Avoid Temperature Swings: Keep it away from doors or windows where it might experience temperature fluctuations or drafts.

Pruning – Your schefflera may also need to be pruned occasionally, especially if it is not getting quite enough light. Pruning a schefflera is simple. Just cut off what you feel is overgrown or leggy back to a size or shape you like. Schefflera houseplants rebound quickly from pruning and will look even fuller and more lush shortly after pruning. Fertilizer – You do not need to fertilize your schefflera, but if you would like to, you can give it a half solution water soluble fertilizer once a year.

Light: It thrives in bright filtered light and prefers humidity.

Placement: Try it in a slightly more humid bathroom or kitchen away from direct sunlight, or on a north-facing windowsill.

Terrariums: Its slow growth and compact size make it suitable for terrariums, especially when planted alongside ferns and moss.

Avoid Temperature Swings: Keep it away from doors or windows where it might experience temperature fluctuations or drafts.

Planting and Care: Plant Fittonia in humus-rich, peat-free house plant compost in a pot with drainage holes. Water it carefully with filtered water, rainwater, or cooled boiled water. Allow the compost to almost dry out between watering. To maintain humidity, mist the leaves or place the pot on a tray with pebbles and water. Grouping Fittonia with other leafy house plants can create a favorable microhabitat.
