We love and indoor tree and, luckily for us, the Schefflera is fairly easy to care for! They'll be happiest in bright indirect light and should be allowed to mostly dry out between waterings.
These particular plants have been planted on a piece of lava rock and mounted in a stone tray, so all you need to do is top up the water!
Please note you may not receive the exact plant pictured, but one of a similar size and condition.
