A member of the Ginseng family, the Schefflera Arboricola leaves grow in an unusual fashion. The Arboricola is a more graceful variety of Schefflera with slightly smaller oval-shaped leaves with pointy tips, which are found in circular groups of 5-9 leaves. Due to its slow growth habit, it finds sufficient space even in smaller rooms. It makes for a great houseplant as it is very tolerant of indoor conditions when it is not exposed to bright sunlight. Schefflera Arboricola is native to Taiwan,and South China. Undemanding and low-maintenance, Schefflera are perfect for beginner plant owners.

Please note: The leaf color varies based on our current inventory, from fully green to fully variegated. We are not able to accommodate requests for the level of variegation per order.
