Our Umbrella Plant comes in a 15cm Nursery Pot.
Beautiful palmate foliage that opens out in the shape of an umbrella, this plant is a classic indoor companion. It is easy to care for and forgiving of a little underwatering and lower light conditions.
The perfect plant to fill a space be it at home or in the office requires a pop of natural colour, but no fuss is needed to keep this houseplant happy.
The Umbrella Plant, if left to grow, will reach a large height and if you would prefer it to stay smaller and bushier, pinch off new growth at the top which encourages the plant to fill out at lower levels.
Please note: Umbrella plants are known to be toxic.
Follow these instructions to keep your Umbrella Plant healthy and happy.
Water: Water thoroughly and allow the top 25-30% of the soil to dry out before watering again. Be sure not to overwater.
Light: Medium to bright, indirect light.

Fertilize: Feed your plant monthly during its active growing period with diluted fertilizer. Only feed in the colder, dormant months if the plant is putting out new leaves.
