    Care info

    Sun: Umbrella Plants do best in bright, indirect light. A Umbrella Plant that gets leggy or floppy might not be receiving enough light. We recommend placing it in a room with east or south-facing windows that receive filtered light via curtains or blinds.

    Water: Water regularly during the growing season and spray the leaves with water frequently. Wait until the soil in the pot dries out and then give it a deep and thorough soaking. Reduce frequency during Fall and Winter.

    Air: Because it is a tropical plant, Umbrella Plants requires fairly high humidity and tropical temperatures; it will suffer in temperatures lower than 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Mimic their native tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high humidity.

    A few easy tricks to boost humidity are:
    • Misting the leaves 3-4x per week with non-tap water
    • Adding a humidifier nearby
    • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot

    Be sure to keep your Umbrella Plant away from drafty rooms, windows, and vents.

    Spiritual Interpretation

    In China, the Umbrella Tree is one of the most commonly used plants in Feng Shui. Its leaves capture positive energy and the plant is said to attract wealth for the residents. The plant's 'umbrella' leaves symbolize protection from the elements.
