Araliaceae > Schefflera elegantissima var. ,

Schefflera elegantissima (formerly Dizygotheca elegantissima) (False Aralia) is a species of plant in the Araliaceae family, native to New Caledonia.[1] False Aralia, also called Threadleaf and Finger Aralia, is actually a small tree. Its leaves are thin, coppery red to dark green with toothed edges. It can reach six to seven feet in height. In cultivation, this plant does best in bright light, and high humidity. The soil should be allowed to dry out between watering.
