The schefflera has been in the living room for several years. It seems to have the perfect location and is also growing considerably. There doesn't seem to be a lack of maintenance either. And yet: there are no flowers. When is the Schefflera in bloom and what do the flowers actually look like?

It is extremely difficult to stimulate the schefflera to flower

A radiant ara in bloom - a rare sight

In the perfect location and under ideal care conditions, it can happen and the radiant aralie forms flowers. However, this is rarely the case in this country. Usually, this houseplant does not find optimal conditions.

When is flowering time?

If this houseplant is ready to bloom, it does so in the warm season. Their flowers usually form between the end of June and the beginning of August.

Blossoms are debilitating

The Schefflera sacrifices an incredible amount of energy to form its flowers. Afterwards it can be severely weakened and even lose leaves. If you don't want to take the risk, remove the bud sites before the buds open!

characteristics of the flowers

The flowers of the radiate aralie have the following characteristics, among others:

  • adhere to the new shoots
  • stand erect to slightly sloping
  • but secrete sticky nectar
  • racemose inflorescence
  • Inflorescence length: up to 30 cm
  • elongated narrow shape of the inflorescence
  • hermaphrodite, radially symmetrical individual flowers
  • double perianth
  • five to eleven petals
  • yellowish-green to yellow-white color


If you don't want the schefflera to lose even more vigor by developing its fruit and seeds, you should cut off the flowers after they wither.
