Easy to care
The characteristic leaf of the Schefflera gave the plant its Dutch name: Vingerboom ("Finger Tree"). This ornamental houseplant belongs to the Araliaceae family and originates from Australia. The Seven-finger has air-cleansing properties and is absolutely non-demanding. An ideal acquisition for the home or office.
During the summer, the Schefflera likes to be on slightly moist soil. In the winter it is important to have the ground dry up first. If in doubt, it is best to wait a while before giving water. The amount of water to give depends on the size of the pot and plant, and the temperature.
Give the Seven-finger a bright spot to stay in without too much direct sunlight, and it will give you no trouble. Good to know: this plant does not tolerate drafts. Furthermore, the darker Schefflera needs less light than the brighter varieties. This rule actually holds for all plants. The brighter the leaf, the more light that the plant needs.
