Schefflera amate

Description

Schefflera amate 

Well, this tropical plant with big lush green leaves which will make your Tarzan fantasies come true. 

The Schefflera Amate is also known as the Umbrella Tree. It’s an easy-care, fast-growing houseplant that will transform your room from bland to Tarzan-friendly in the blink of an eye.

There’s nothing as fresh and clean as shiny green leaves against a white background. Put these lovelies up against your wall for maximum impact. 

Using larger plants to redesign a room is a cost-effective and healthy way to improve your living space. Plants cleanse the air of toxins and bring happy nature into your home.

Don’t worry that this Schefflera Amate will outgrow its welcome, it’s a specially created umbrella plant that stays compact.

An umbrella tree is easy to care for, just keep it away from direct sunlight, and water when the potting mix has dried down to a few cms. Learn how to care for your indoor plants on our blog page 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I bring a jungle theme alive and brighten a bland room with rich green foliage. I can also grow in the garden if you have a tropical theme but don’t want full-size umbrella trees taking up all the space.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 3 metres high by 2 metres wide in the ground but will stay much smaller in a container as an indoor plant
  • Where to place me: I like it light and bright but I can also handle darker spots in your house. Keep my foliage away from the direct sunlight or these magnificent leaves will turn brown and crispy.
  • How far to space me: I need a fair amount of room if I’m outside - give me three metres.
  • Soil conditions: I like fertile well-drained soil or potting mix - pot with a hole in it is best!

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
