Schefflera Amate vs Schefflera Amate Soleil
I was at the nursery and I picked up a Schefflera Amate Soleil. It was labelled as a Schefflera Amate but I'm sure it's a Soleil due to its colour. It very obviously chartreuse green.
The question is what is the difference between the regular Schefflera Amate and the Schefflera Amate Soleil? Does the Soleil grow more slowly? I've been all around the web and I dont see much info at all on this. Haven't seen many pics of large (over 4 ft) Soleil's in homes either so I was wondering if that's possible with this plant.
My plans are to let it grow a to about 3-4 feet and then start pruning to make it look like a tree, with a bare trunk and a bushy top. That'll be a while before it grows that high. I'm guessing mine is about 2-2.5 ft so far.
Anyone have a Soleil who would like to share their experiance?
