Schefflera Arboricola Variegated

Outdoors Schefflera Arboricola Variegated tolerates full sun, but generally appreciates protection from direct sun during the heat of the day. It also tolerates shade well. Water regularly but moderately during the growing season. Avoid overwatering. Best to deeply water and then allow soils to nearly dry before applying an additional deep watering. Reduce watering somewhat from fall to late winter. Plants may be taken outdoors to sheltered locations in summer. Indoor plants are best placed in bright light at east, west or southern windows in curtain filtered sun (3-4 hours per day). Avoid direct sun. Indoor temperatures should not dip below 60 degrees F. in winter. Clean leaves as needed with a damp sponge to maintain best foliage appearance. To increase humidity, mist foliage with water and/or place containers on a tray of wet pebbles. Prune to control size.
