Schefflera arboricola 'Trinette'
The popular variegated arboricola is a fantastic house plant and a South Florida gardener's dream plant - a showy, versatile, easy-care shrub that thrives in sun or shade.
Schefflera arboricola are popular for their beautiful color, convenient small size and easy nature. The ideal environment is warm and evenly moist with bright, indirect light making Schefflera the perfect plant for livening up the house, office or garden. Variegated Dwarf Schefflera may also be categorized as Brassia arboricola variegata.
During the growing season, allow the soil to dry between watering. However, do not leave the soil dry for too long or allow your Schefflera to sit in water which could lead to root rot. Leaves that turn black and drop are signs of excessive water. Too little water causes the tips of the leaves to curl or wrinkle.
