We love these - not just a plant but a natural work of art. The Schefflera plant grows out real lava stone which provides it support, moisture and nutrients. A living sculpture!
The plant draws water from the porous lava stone and the watertight decorative tray. Fill the tray two thirds full and ensure that there is always a layer of water in it, otherwise the stone will dry out. Tap water often contains lime, so the stone may turn white over time, use rainwater to avoid this. There is no need to fertilise immediately, the plant initially extracts nutrients from the lava stone. From April to October give only a quarter of the recommended dose of liquid houseplant fertiliser when watering. This plant likes a bright position, but avoid direct midday sun in the summer months.
Pot diameter: 14cm
