Also known as the Octopus tree, this tropical indoor plant can grow up to 2 meters tall! Native to tropical Australia, New Guinea and Java, the umbrella tree is a fast-growing evergreen thats easy to care for and maintain. This indoor Plant Baby can live for decades in the right conditions! Prune her to shape her and promote new bushy growth in the summer months.
Umbrella trees thrive in bright, indirect light. Place your plant near a window with filtered sunlight or in a well-lit room. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. Avoid placing them in drafty areas or near heating or cooling vents, as they can be sensitive to temperature fluctuations.
Water your umbrella tree when the top inch of the soil feels dry. Be careful not to overwater, as she plant can be susceptible to root rot. Ensure proper drainage and allow excess water to drain away. Reduce watering during the winter months when the plant's growth slows down.
Feed your umbrella tree with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertiliser once a month during the warmer seasons.
Keep your new Plant Baby out of reach of children and animals.
