Because it was nice weather out this past weekend, I decided it was the right time to do something about my schefflera…
…as you can see in this “before” picture, my top-heavy schefflera, also known as an umbrella plant, obviously had outgrown its original lightweight plastic pot. So outside on the back deck, I transplanted it…
…and ta-da! Here’s the “after” picture, now with my schefflera in a tall esschert pot. Pretty cool, huh?
I found this pretty blue and white tall pot deeply discounted at Stein Mart last week, but I also have seen similar types of pots in various shapes and sizes at Amazon. You might remember that I featured a differently shaped blue and white esschert planter here that holds a Christmas cactus.
I always try to find planters for my houseplants that have drain holes. The plants seem to thrive better with adequate soil drainage.
This schefflera was just a little ol’ thing when I first purchased it, and it did amazingly well in its plastic pot, even after it had outgrown it and I had to prop it up to keep it from falling over.
I imagine that my schefflera will thrive quite well in its new esschert pot.
Schefflera is a very common tropical houseplant, probably because it’s low-maintenance and so easy to grow that it’s almost laughable.
I was so pleased with how transplanting a common houseplant to this tall esschert planter really transformed the pot and the plant into something striking and beautiful!
