Is this a Schefflera?

Hi folks,

I found this plant in the hallway of my apartment building. I have a thing for variegated plants, so I took a cutting of this, not really knowing what it is but guessing.

I have it growing Hydro now in a little dish in my office where it gets only flourescent light. It's doing very nicely, on its 3rd set of new leaves since I took it to the office.

What do you all think please?

Shefflera

I'll try & get some better pix of it & post back.

Hard to tell for sure but I think it is.
Its typical of younger sets of leaves to have just 4 or 5 instead of the usual 7+...at least on my scheffs it is typical.

Seems a pretty easy going, plant. So far I find it no muss, no fuss.

Yes, thanks, seems to have charmed its way into my life, who knew?

They should ALL be this easy! Down the road, maybe I'll take some office pix of it.

Thanks for confirming its ID.

probly S arbicola trinette or gold capella - will likely show much more variegation in strong light - can take full sun in S FL

You're not going to pot it up and watch it get 5' tall like they do, LOL?
