How To Care For Australian Umbrella Tree

The Australian Umbrella Tree requires watering fairly often. However, let the soil in your pot dry out between watering. Make sure you don’t over-water your Australian Umbrella Plant as this will kill your beloved house plant. A tell-tale sign of this is if the leaves start to turn yellow. If you don’t have anything to water with, why not try our BRAND NEW watering cans?

Your Australian Umbrella Plant loves  bright, indirect sunlight. A common problem is that they may lose leaves and wilt rapidly – this is often caused by too little light. Offer them a position with a splash of morning sun and avoid them being exposed to for more than three hours of direct sunlight.

You shouldn’t need to mist your Schefflera too regularly, but all plants like a bit of a pampering every now and again.  If you have nothing to mist with, we have the perfect solution! Try our water mister. Equally, you could always water your houseplants, once a season, in the shower.

Umbrella Plants like a well-draining, loose potting mixture. If you’re a fan of making your own soil substrates, you could add seem perlite or vermiculite into your mix.

The Australian Umbrella Tree doesn’t really need fertilising, but you can give them a feed once a year if you wish. Something like our Miracle-Gro All Purpose Pump and Feed would be perfect as this will ensure your umbrella plant has strong roots, stems and a bright bushy foliage at the same time!

Although rare, the Australian Umbrella Tree may become susceptible to aphids, scales, and mealybugs. If this becomes a problem, simply treat it with some of our neem oil!

You should look to repot your Umbrella Plant about once a year. You can tell when it’s time to repot when the roots are root-bound! Have a look at our extensive range of stone plant pots and pick which one you find nicest!

About Australian Umbrella Tree

Originating from the rainforests of Australia, the Australian Umbrella Tree is one of the most beautiful houseplants we have to offer! With a beautiful bushy foliage, this plant has delicate long leaves that are waxy and green.

If you’re already well acquainted with the Umbrella plant, you’ll know it to have short, plump, and rounded leaves. In comparison, the Schefflera Actinophylla Amate is the very opposite of this! This indoor houseplant has  long, thin, and pointed providing a sleek and elegant look.

The Australian Umbrella Plant is popular for its compact nature and ease of care. It loves to be in a warm and humid envinroment, similar to its natural habitat! Give your Schefflera bright, indirect light and sit it in a bright corner or by a window.
