Re: How to propagate an umbrella plant
There are a few ways to propagate an umbrella tree, assuming you are talking about a schefflera. Air layering is one way, but the easiest way is cuttings. Cut into approximately 10cm lengths (tips preferably). Cut off any of the bottom leaves of the cuttings but leave the new tips. Make sure you keep them moist but not too wet either. Bottom heat and chemical hormones will also help such as 'Clonex' but is not necessary.
