A popular variety, with a dwarf growth habit that is better suited for indoor applications; stunning golden foliage will brighten any room with its bright chartreuse, glossy appearance
Features & Attributes
Amate Soleil Schefflera's attractive large glossy oval compound leaves remain chartreuse in color throughout the year. The flowers are not ornament-ally significant. The burgundy stems can be quite attractive and add to the plant's interest.
This is a multi-stemmed evergreen houseplant with a more or less rounded form. This plant can be pruned at any time to keep it looking its best.
Planting & Growing
When grown indoors, Amate Soleil Schefflera can be expected to grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. This houseplant performs well in both bright or indirect sunlight and strong artificial light, and can therefore be situated in almost any well-lit room or location. It does best in average to evenly moist soil, but will not tolerate standing water. The surface of the soil shouldn't be allowed to dry out completely, and so you should expect to water this plant once and possibly even twice each week.
Be aware that your particular watering schedule may vary depending on its location in the room, the pot size, plant size and other conditions; if in doubt, ask one of our experts in the store for advice. It is not particular as to soil type or pH; an average potting soil should work just fine. Be warned that parts of this plant are known to be toxic to humans and animals, so special care should be exercised if growing it around children and pets.
We recommend the Australian Munash Organics soil food and foliage spray to keep you plants happy and healthy!
