Schefflera Arboricola Benefits
Perks that come with bringing home a new Schefflera Arboricola house plant include its resilience and purifying ability. The Schefflera are hardy houseplants that can live a long time under the right circumstances. Some can live over 30 years old! Besides that, it can do other cool plant stuff too, like cleaning the environment around it. They absorb toxins out of the air and churn out pure oxygen instead. This constant flow of air reduces stagnancy and can also boost productivity. Put this baby in your office or living room and watch it work.
Perched throughout the thick, cream-colored trunk, is the Abriocola’s glossy, decorative foliage. When the sun hits it just right, the leaves appear to glisten and shine proudly. Other times it looks like the leaves were kissed by a light summer rain since they are so shiny and reflective. From some angles, it looks like a fake plant that could be made out of plastic. Gotcha!
Schefflera have a vivid assortment of green hues on their leaves and stems that brighten up any room, entryway, or office. This houseplant comes packed with forest, lime, and neon splashes that almost reflect back at you differently depending on the different levels of sunlight hitting it. The playful greens paired with just the right amount of light make the plant almost look like it’s glowing.
Everyone loves the Schefflera Arboricola leaves and striking foliage, and who can blame them? Besides their intriguing coloration, Schefflera leaves also look like little flowers. The leaves are shaped like petals and even curve slightly upwards as flowers might when they are drinking up sunlight. When looking at the houseplant from far, it looks like a tall bush that bloomed a bunch of bright green, plastic flowers.
