In breeding Scandent Schefflera, It's better to choose peat soil, and the right amount of river sand made cultivating soil, mixed soil during the growth to ensure that there is no less than four hours a day of direct sunlight. In summer, we need to shade the light, and water once a day. Keep the soil moist. In autumn, it can be watered every 3 ~ 4 days a time, and fertilize once a week.
Scandent Schefflera likes to grow in a loose, fertile and nutrient rich substrate. When potted, three parts of peat soil and two parts of rotten leaf soil can be added to mix into culture soil. After that, the Scandent Schefflera basin should be changed every 1 to 2 years.
Scandent Schefflera likes to grow in a sunny environment. During the growth period, the Scandent Schefflera should have no less than 4 hours of direct sunlight every day so that it can grow well. In summer, it needs shading treatment at noon.
Scandent Schefflera likes to grow in a wet environment. In spring, it needs to be watered according to the wet and dry condition of the soil in the basin. In summer, it needs more water.
The management of fertilization is one of Scandent Schefflera's breeding methods and precautions. Fertilization should be done once a week in the summer growth bloom period. The NPK compound fertilizer should be buried in the soil, and the nitrogen fertilizer should be reduced if the plants of variegated leaf species.
Because Scandent Schefflera has a poor cold resistance, the overwintering temperature should not be lower than 12℃ in winter, it is better to control the temperature at 20 ~ 28℃ and the temperature in summer should not be higher than 30℃. At this time, attention should be paid to ventilation and spray water on the ground to increase the ambient air humidity if necessary.
