Schefflera arboricola 'Janine'

Family

Araliaceae

Origin

China & Taiwan

Description 

A dwarf variety with medium growth habit. It is a hardy and evergreen tropical perennial.
It produces captivating small lime-green leaves that are mottled from creamy white to yellow. Leaves are palmate, fingers-like with five to seven lobes whose midribs all radiate from one point. The elliptic leaves with entire margin are leathery, thick, smooth and glossy. They are held by flexible green petioles and arranged alternately along the stems.

Due to its dwarf habit, ‘Janine’ also makes an ideal subject for bonsai culture.

Environment

Schefflera is an easy-to-grow houseplant that does best in high light but will usually grow fine in medium light. It can tolerate direct sun on its leaves indoors, even in hot-summer climates.

Grow in humus-enriched, sandy/loamy and well-drained soil with good aeration.

Water schefflera when the top of the potting mix dries out. Its tolerance of dry soil is one of the factors that has made it a popular indoor plant for so long. Fertilize schefflera regularly (just once or twice a year). .

Landscape Use

An ornamental and perennial shrub
