Dwarf Umbrella Tree, Schefflera Seed
Schefflera arboricola, a.k.a. Dwarf Umbrella Tree, is a stunning shrub with a compact and bushy habit. This decorative, subtropical beauty has glossy, oblong leaves. The shiny green, leathery leaves are arranged on their slender stalks like an umbrella, or like fingers on a hand. This dwarf-type Schefflera arboricola looks like a small version of the more tree-like S. actinophylla, with smaller thicker leaves. As a houseplant Schefflera is super versatile and it adapts well to various conditions. Schefflera is easy to prune to keep it tall and slender or short and compact. In addition, Schefflera is a great air-purifier.
Seed Germination: Soak the seeds in hot water for 24 hours before planting. Plant the seeds 1/4” deep with 2-3 seeds per container. Cover the soil with plastic to maintain the humidity and keep soil temperature around 70F. The seeds should germinate in 3-6 weeks.

Our Seed Promise
"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.
