Habitat: Indoor / 60 - 80° F

It's best to have this plant set up at 60 – 80 °F. This is enough for the plant to grow and sustain itself. Anything lower than this can become too cold and impede its ability to stay healthy. It is common for the plant to do well in warmer conditions in Taiwan and that is when it tends to grow the most. The most important thing is to ensure there are no sudden changes in temperature. This is when things start to get worse.

Maximum Size: Up to 15'

You will want to think about the overall size of this plant as it tends to grow a lot. This is why pruning the plant is a must or it will grow up to 15 feet tall. This is usually not reasonable for those who are setting it up indoors. Most people will continue to prune it so it does not get to that type of height. This is something to keep a note of when setting up the plant indoors.

Space / Planter Size: Large

This is going to require a large planter due to how much it can grow. While most people are going to stay on top of things by pruning the plant, it is still important to give the roots enough space to spread. This is how the plant is going to stay healthy as time goes on.


The "Dwarf Umbrella Tree" is found in Taiwan and is appreciated for its natural beauty. The plant tends to grow with its umbrella-like shape and is often cared for to be set up indoors. It does well outdoors but can also do well indoors as long as the temperature is stable.

Plant Care

It is important to set up the soil by having 1 part perlite and 2 parts peat moss. This is the best condition for the roots to spread and for the plant to grow as it needs to. The plant tends to be easy to care for as long as its height is managed well.

Water: Moderate

There is no reason to excessively water this plant. It is best to plan when the soil is dry. This is enough to ensure you don't have to deal with standing water and it can still grow properly.

Sun: Indirect

It does not require direct sunlight. As long as there is indirect sunlight in the room, it will do well. It is best to put it in a stable setting where it does get this type of sunlight throughout the day.

Care Level: Moderate

It is important to do stem cuttings from time to time to make sure it does not overgrow indoors. This is where some care is required.
