The Amate has been around for a long time and for good reason. You will need a bright environment to keep this houseplant looking its best. When happy, the umbrella plant has huge green shiny foliage. We grow the Amate in 10 to 17 inch pots with heights ranging from 36 inches to 10 feet. The larger 17 inch can range from 8 feet to 11 feet.
The meters below indicate a range of light and tolerance to drought. The ranges are indicated by the little light bulbs and the small water drops.
