Easy to Care for Schefflera Arboricola Plant
Schefflera Arboricola hails from Taiwan, where the trees grow upwards of 20 feet tall. Indoors, with limited root systems, the plants typically grow to about 10 to 15 feet tall, and about 3 to 4 feet wide. The brightly colored green and yellow foliage lightens and brightens any room or corner indoors or even any dark, shady spot outdoors. Inside, these plants make excellent bonsai as they are tolerant of being trained and pruned, and like to stay fairly root bound. Alternatively, Schefflera can have the bottom leaves and branches pruned out to form an upright standard or tree, reaching about 15 feet inside. Or it's possible to let Schefflera have a more natural look and let it branch and stay more compact with leaves and branches. Outdoors, the variegated Schefflera Arboricola will not tolerate full sun during the hottest part of the day; part to full shade is preferred. Schefflera are commonly planted where hardy as individual shrubs or trees. As they take well to pruning, Schefflera can also be trained to grow together densely as a hedge.
