Environment

Habitat: Above 65°F

It is best to have this plant set up in a room that is above 65°F. In general, this is a plant that is not going to survive for long when the temperature dips. It is a warm-weather plant and it has to be kept in cozy conditions for it to grow. Otherwise, the leaves are going to fall and they will not maintain their shape for long.

Maximum Size: 4 - 6'

Depending on how well the plant is watered and maintained, it is capable of growing up to six feet. This is often a plant that is going to maximize its growth as long as it is watered properly during the growing season. This is when you have to be alert and continue to keep the soil moist.

Space / Planter Size: Large

This is going to be based on the size of the planter and how it turns out when it is time to look at what works for the plant. The Schefflera Arboricola Variegated Moondrop Mini will grow over four feet, which means it is going to need a larger plant for its roots to survive and thrive.

Sun: Bright, Indirect

One detail to think about with the sunlight is where the plant is being positioned. It does not require direct sunlight to thrive. Instead, the goal should be to make sure the space is bright and there is indirect sunlight in the space. As long as there is indirect sunlight and the temperature is above 65°F, this will be more than enough for it to do well.
