Dwarf Umbrella Tree
She's a mini! Ella is the shortest of all of her Schefflera cousins, growing up to only 5 feet as opposed to 50. She has long, thin, glossy green leaves. She doesn't mind an occasional dry period, which makes sense when you remember that her leaves are basically little umbrellas.
Bright, indirect light.
Once a week, when soil is dry two inches deep.
Toxic to your best friends.
Loves an occasional spritz.
Small: about 10" tall and a pot size of 4". Medium: about 15" tall and a pot size of 6".
Pro-tip: If you see leaves dropping or yellowing, it means she needs more light.
