How To Re-Pot and Grow Your Umbrella Tree Plant Inside
- Have a spot chosen inside that has good indirect sunlight. A great spot could be in the corner of a room near a window.
- Prefill your new pot to the halfway mark with a good quality potting mix.
- Gently remove the plant from the temporary plastic pot, lightly loosen the roots, and cut away any matted roots.
- Place in the pot and fill around the sides with a good quality potting mix and firm it down gently—water well.
- Once the top of the soil has dried out in the following week, check to the depth of 2-3cm and water accordingly. A great tool to help you with watering is a garden moisture meter.
- Like most indoor plants, the umbrella tree plant needs good drainage to avoid root rot. You should plant in a pot with a drainage hole.
- Umbrella tree plants can handle a little bit of overwatering, which is excellent for the novice indoor green thumb; however, they are more tolerant of dry soil. It’s also a great idea to empty the drainage saucer after watering as well.
- While your umbrella tree plant doesn’t need regular fertiliser if you want faster growth, you can give your plant a basic diluted plant fertiliser once every month during the growing season.
