Hawaiian Schefflera

Hawaiian Schefflera

New gardener right here. (Actually, I don't know if I could technically call myself a "gardener" since I only have 2 houseplants so far). My husband and I bought 2 houseplants the other week. A Hawaiian Schefflera and a Rubber Plant. Houseplants - May 2008 (5) Houseplants - May 2008 Anybody here have any tips on how to care from them? Ensure that they are happy indoors? Right now the HS is in our living room while the RP is in our dining room. Both are getting some sunlight but not too much. Will this be a concern for both or either one of the plants? Also, with the HS, do I need to prune it? It's looking very robust at the moment but in closer inspection, the botton part of the pot is very "congested". Is this normal? The HS on this website is not as full, is this how the HS is suppose to look? Any first hand tips from those who have either plan is much appreciated. We're in Missouri if that matters. And finally, any recommendations for a good bathroom plant? Something small is preferable since we don't really have much space. Oh, and one strong enough not to require any natural light. Thanks!
