Although umbrella plants do best in indirect light, they can usually tolerate direct indoor light, and will just grow more slowly and become leggy in medium-to-low light. Humidity is generally not a concern, but the plants can be more susceptible to pests like scale and spider mites if the air is too dry.
Water every 7-14 days or as the soil becomes dry. This plant is flexible about watering but will be more tolerant of dry soil than overwatering. Yellow leaves are a sign of overwatering and drooping leaves are a sign it needs more water.
Umbrella plant sends up a flower stalk with pink or white blooms in early spring, but it's the dramatic 2-foot-diameter leaves that are the main attraction.
Though umbrella plants are easy to grow indoors, they can have some issues that you may need to overcome. The first issue that you need to be aware of, especially if you have pets, is that this plant is slightly toxic to dogs and cats.
