'Gold Capella' (Schefflera arboricola) is among the easiest to grow. A tropical plant with green-and-yellow leaves, it's also called variegated Hawaiian Elf Schefflera. The plant grows well as a houseplant but also can thrive outdoors in the summer.
The plant grows best outdoors in partial shade and also tolerates full shade, especially where summers are hot. A spot under tall trees that provide shifting shade throughout the day is a good location for 'Gold Capella,' as is a porch or patio where the plant gets some afternoon shade. Indoors, a 'Gold Capella' does best in bright indirect light, such as near a lightly curtained south- or west-facing window; it can also tolerate some direct sunlight on its leaves when it is grown indoors.
