I’m Boba the Dwarf Umbrella Tree and native to Southeast Asia. My trunk stands upright with many tiny umbrella leaves branching out. My leaves are glossy green and fan out like tiny umbrellas. I’ll do fine in shadier spots of the home, like northern facing windows.
The best way to water me is to submerge my pot in water up to the rim for 10 minutes. I'll soak water up through my drainage hole. Try to keep my leaves dry and make sure there is good air circulation. In winter make sure I'm not placed near a heater which will dry me out. Also keep me way from pets; I might give them a very bad day if they decide to eat me.
Symbolism: In China, the Umbrella Tree is one of the most commonly used plants in Feng Shui. Its leaves capture positive energy and the plant is said to attract wealth for the residents. The plant's 'umbrella' leaves symbolize protection from the elements.
