The main downside is with age, or prolonged incorrect care, the lower leaves will fall and you will have a bare lower stem but still with a full canopy, which despite sometimes being called an Umbrella Tree, can look very odd indoors. The plant also offers very low resistance to pests, with Red Spider Mite and Scale Insects being a possible serious problem. You can usually find all green or variegated Umbrella Plants like these, quite easilyAll problems can however be overcome, so if you'd like an Umbrella Plant as a house guest get out there and get one. There are several different varieties and growth habits to pick from. Firstly you need to decide if you want an all green variety or an Umbrella Plant with variegated leaves. The green ones although arguably less attractive are much better suited to coping with less light and lower temperatures, where the variegation varieties are less tolerant of such conditions and have a shorter height. You do need to think about the ultimate placement in your home first, but other than that pick your favorite.
