This glossy evergreen beauty offers “umbrella’ like leaves adding a touch of the tropical to your home. It can grow up to 3m tall in the right conditions. This is a fast growing, easy houseplant that really makes a statement. Position - The Umbrella Tree likes to be situated in a warm spot, away from cold draughts or air conditioning, with bright indirect light and high humidity.
