Also known as an Umbrella Tree, the Shefflera Amate thrives in medium to bright indirect sunlight. It's hard not to love a plant with glossy, eye-catching foliage. This fairly quick growing houseplant will develop into a tree form but you can pinch it back to prevent that from happening. This beauty will take up some space in the home as it grows a bit wider as it grows taller. Shefflera will naturally grow toward the sunlight so rotate the plant a 1/4 turn every month to encourage all around, uniform growth. Water thoroughly, then allow the top 1-2" of soil to dry out in between waterings as the plant does not like to be consistently wet.
