Schefflera (Schefflera arboricola)
Schefflera Plant FeaturesSchefflera (also called umbrella plant or arbicola) is a popular houseplant because it's easy to grow (it tolerates a range of growing conditions) and adds fun texture with its divided hand-like leaves.
Because it's so tolerant, schefflera makes a good choice for living, dining, family, and bedrooms. Many people are especially fond of growing it in well-lit bedrooms because at night the houseplant is efficient at filtering indoor air pollution from the room.
The schefflera variety 'Gold Capella' is particularly nice; it shows off dark green hand-shaped leaves variegated with streaks of golden yellow. It really brightens a room!
