Couldn't fault their service or plant quality. I live in Northern Ireland and it is extremely difficult at the moment to have a plant delivered it came in good time and plant was in excellent condition will use them again. I got a few peace lilies for an addition to my aquarium set up and doing great! Thanks

I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

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!

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

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!

If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Infections page!

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!

Wondering how to repot your houseplant? Take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

Care for your Australian Umbrella Tree with these

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 beautiful bushy foliage, this plant has delicate long leaves that are waxy and green.

The Australian Umbrella Tree Looks Exotic!

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.

As this Umbrella Tree is a natural showstopper, you may want to pair this with a sleek-looking pot. We recommend the Elho Jazz or Elho Vibes range! Did you know they’re made from 100% recycled plastic?

What Are the Australian Umbrella Tree’s Ideal Conditions?

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

This plant will love an occasional misting, so make sure you invest in a high-quality water mister!

Is this product not for you? Not to worry! Take a look at our (almost) Unkillable plants and our Best Large Houseplants pages.

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
