Easy to Grow, Indoors or Out

Why Dwarf Umbrella Trees?

An adaptable gem perfect for growing indoors or out, the Dwarf Umbrella Tree makes the ultimate statement. With its no-fuss maintenance and year-round, glossy dark green leaves, this joyful plant is second to none.

Even better? It's an exotic house plant with versatility to spare. These plush green plants can be grown as bushes, trees or even as bonsais, since you can train the trunk to be braided and create an elegant look, a la the classic Ficus.

Stems grow upwards and out in a symmetrical circle, like an unfolded umbrella. The plush greenery is accompanied by long red tentacles that look like flowers in bloom, for dramatic dimension you'll love.

Choose the Arboricola for glossy, solid-green foliage and a classic look - or get the Trinette for eye-catching, variegated foliage in hues of dark green, yellow and creamy white. You can't go wrong - both will be an excellent addition to your home or yard.

Use the Dwarf Umbrella Plant as a house or patio plant in colder climates, bringing it indoors in the winter. In warmer climates (growing zones 9-11) you can use the Umbrella Plant as an eye-catching garden accent or even hedge!

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Best of all, the Dwarf Umbrella Plant isn't all about looks - it helps you breathe more easily, too! NASA’s Clean Air Study found that common indoor plants are instrumental in filtering out harmful toxins and pollutants from the air. We can’t think of a better way to enjoy cleaner air than with this visually interesting and vivacious plant.

And another huge perk is its strong beginnings. Because we've planted, grown and shipped our Dwarf Umbrella Tree with absolute care, you get a greater chance of success in your homescape. We're put in the hard work at our nursery so that you reap the rewards of healthier roots and a head start on growth.

Luxe, luxuriant and uniquely-crafted - the Dwarf Umbrella Plant has it all. Order one (or a few) of your own today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: During the winter months, the Dwarf Umbrella enjoys bright light. As for spring and summer, it does well with indirect light and a bit of dappled shade. However, the Umbrella Plant prefers warm temperatures, so be sure to keep it away from drafty areas.

When you're repotting or planting your Umbrella, select a container that's twice the width of the shipped container and one that has drainage holes.

2. Watering: Water your Dwarf Umbrella Tree lightly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not soggy. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind: Put your finger in the soil to check its level of moisture. There is no need to water your Dwarf Umbrella until you have a full inch of dryness starting from the top of the soil.
