An undemanding houseplant, the Variegated Schefflera Arboricola is a graceful tabletop version of the larger Schefflera Arboricola Tree. With small, oval-shaped leaves spotted with cream coloring, the Arboricola is known as the Octopus plant due to its leaves arranged in a circular fashion in groups of five to nine offshoots.

A slow-growing houseplant, the Schefflera Arboricola is both undemanding and low-maintenance, making for a great addition to smaller spaces with limited time for plant care.

Native to Taiwan and South China, the Variegated Schefflera Arboricola enjoys low to bright indirect light and the occasional boost of humidity from time to time.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We spent a lot of time selecting pots that not only look great but also have optimal drainage, complete with matching saucer. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
