Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Winter

They need bright but in-direct light. A common complaint about schefflera plants is that they get leggy and floppy. This problem is caused by too little light. Making sure that you are growing schefflera in bright but in-direct light will help prevent leggy growth. On the other side, you do not want to place a schefflera houseplant in direct, bright light, as this will burn the leaves. Only grow outdoors where the temperature does not fall below 55F.
