Umbrella Tree Care

Size & Growth Of The Tree That Looks Like An Umbrella

When grown in its native climate, these dwarf trees can actually grow to reach 10’ to 15’ feet tall.

When kept as a houseplant, the arboricola tree usually tops out at about 5’ – 6’ feet fall. Three feet high is more typical.


Flowering is common on umbrella plants outdoors in the ground. Dwarf umbrellas kept indoors seldom flower.

Light & Temperature

Dwarf Schefflera is winter hardy but should be grown inside as a house plant in Tasmania.

The Umbrella plant can adapt to a wide variety of light levels but prefers a bright light intensity if possible especially the variegated varieties.

In the summertime, you can move your container plants outside to a sheltered location with bright, partial shade like decks (don't cook your plant)

We recommend the Australian Munash Organics soil food and foliage spray to keep you plants happy and healthy!
