Native to the lush forests of Taiwan, the yellow umbrella plant, also known as gold capella, thrives amidst bright filtered light and moist conditions. Averaging eight meters tall in the wild but between 12 cms and three meters indoors, some strains of the umbrella plant can even be grown as bonsai trees.
While the plant will flower outdoors and does quite well as a landscaping plant in warm climates, the indoor version does not typically bloom. Leaves vary between seven and nine in number in a circular, palmate pattern and are broad and shiny with a thick, uniform texture. The plant's central stems are sturdy and are sometimes braided together for a decorative effect. Animals and small children should be discouraged from ingesting the leaves, as they cause damage to the kidneys, digestive system and other organs.
With its light, leafy texture and bright, variegated yellow and green leaves, the Yellow Umbrella plant makes an attractive house plant on either a window sill or as a free-standing floor plant. Umbrella plants aren't fussy and can withstand irregular watering, although they prefer moist conditions. They also don't need regular fertilising and will do quite well in light that is bright but indirect.
Prefers moderate to bright indirect light.
Water moderately, keeping the soil moist in summer and letting the soil dry out in winter between watering.
It can cause digestive distress

Bloomspace delivers to NSW, VIC, QLD, ACT, and SA. Some custom extra-large plants (>150cm and >35cm pot diameter) can only be delivered to the Sydney Metro area. Other than that, we ship to all towns and cities in the states mentioned, regardless of the population of the region. Remote country regions will cost significantly more and take longer for your plants to be delivered.
Plants in the post, will they be safe?
All plants are carefully packed with custom packaging techniques to ensure your plant arrives in perfect condition. We have conducted extensive testing on how long plants last in a box, rest assured, your plants will be fine! This applies to remote regional orders. You would be surprised how long plants last when properly packaged in a card box! For customers located in a metro area, don't be alarmed if your plants have to sit in storage over a weekend. While we try to avoid this from happening, extensive experience tells us that your plants will be fine.
How long does delivery take?
The majority of orders (if ordered on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday) are received in 1-2 days for all metro areas in capital cities. We try not to send plants on Thursday and Friday to ensure the plants aren't sitting in a box unnecessarily. Please get in touch with us if you are in Sydney and require urgent delivery later in the week, as this can be arranged upon request. Located in Sydney and require fast delivery? Please reach out to us and we can arrange a courier service for same-day delivery. Bear in mind, same-day courier services can be very expensive for large plants.
How much does delivery cost?
There is no delivery cost for orders in the Sydney and Melbourne metro areas. We have negotiated heavily discounted shipping rates with several courier services for people outside of these areas and if you would like your plant delivered earlier you can choose an express option. Please select your preferred shipping company and option at the checkout page.
I live in an apartment building/will not be home between 9-5pm/it is difficult to deliver to my place, will this be a problem?
YES! What often occurs is a back and forth tennis match between you and the courier company, with us in the middle powerless to help you get your plants. If you live in an apartment building, we strongly recommend getting your order sent to an alternative address such as your workplace or a friend's house. That way your package can be delivered without you having to be present. If it is safe for the shipping companies to leave your plants at your property, please select that option through our delivery system.
