How to take care of Gold Capella
Schefflera plants are not difficult to grow, providing you supply plenty of indirect sun light, warmth and humidity.
Place the plant in a bright, indirect light position. In the summer, it can be moved outside in a shady position.
They appreciate lots of humidity and will thrive in well drained soil. Water when top soil is dry to touch and never allow it to sit in water in the saucer. If temperature drops below 16 degrees Celsius they may experience some problems.
Do not expose to draughts or dry heating vents. Use some house plant fertiliser after 6-8 weeks. Transplant to bigger pot when needed and ensure a good drainage system.
