How do you fix an overwatered umbrella plant?
Too Much Water
Repot the umbrella plant in good-quality, well-draining potting soil for better drainage if necessary. The potting mix shouldn’t feel soggy, but just slightly moist. Allow the soil to dry out before watering, and drooping leaves should recover.
Do umbrella plants need a lot of sunlight?
Although umbrella plants do best in bright, indirect light, they can usually tolerate direct indoor light and will just grow more slowly and become leggy in medium-to-low light. Humidity is generally not a concern, but the plants can be more susceptible to pests like scale and spider mites if the air is too dry.
