I found it in the garbage, and I want to know how to take proper care of it.

Thanks,

It's a variegated Schefflera arboricola.

A plant that pretty in the garbage -why? I'd check for pests. Maybe they were just moving?

Morning,

Kev, you found a really nice Scheff. It looks healthy, but as Purple suggested, to be on the safe side, check for pests.

People toss plants for different reasons. Some families move, some buy plants for summer, then discard in autumn.

I've seen plants and pots in the alley. Most were purchased for summer gardens or as flowering gift plants. As soon as flowers faded, it went in the trash.

Good luck, Toni
