The Schefflera species are wonderful tropical plants with long, shiny, oval, green leaves that droop gracefully from a central stalk. The Schefflera or umbrella plants for sale in Colchester, Essex, at Poplar Nurseries require bright, but indirect light. If foliage begins to drop and turn yellow, the plant is not receiving enough light. Allow soil to dry in between watering. Ensure the plant never sits in water.
