Care and tips Schefflera Amate XL
Caring for the Schefflera Amate is not a complicated process, and the Amate is also an air-purifying houseplant! Nevertheless, it is possible that the Schefflera Amate is not entirely happy. This can often be seen in its leaves; if the houseplant develops brown/yellow leaves that droop, this is often a sign of a lack of sunlight. In this case, move the Schefflera Amate to a brighter spot and it will recover on its own!
People often think that falling leaves are the result of a shortage of water, but this is not always the case. So before you give the Schefflera Amate more water, first check the soil properly, as a surplus of water can have nasty consequences.
Water requirements of the Schefflera Amate XL

In the winter months, the soil can dry out a little in between waterings. If you are in doubt about whether to water again, we advise you to wait a while. It is better for the Schefflera Amate to have too little water than too much! When the edges and tips of the leaves turn brown/yellow, this is a sign of incorrect watering.
