Bonsai Umbrella Tree on Lava
The Schefflera or Umbrella Tree on Lava is rooted in lava that's from a 700-degree volcanic eruption. The porous material allows the plant to anchor its roots into the rock and absorb moisture and nutrients. With its elegant black stone tray, this sculptural plant will look fab on a desk or table.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.

About Bonsai Umbrella Tree on Lava
The Umbrella tree draws water from the porous lava rock and the tray. Fill the tray two-thirds full with water and ensure that it does not dry out. If possible, use rainwater because limescale in tap water can stain the rock. Put in a bright place, but avoid direct afternoon sunshine. Nutrients are held in the lava rock but this can be topped up with liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
