Hi, Well the term umbrella plant is used on a number of different species (the problem with common names) so i can't be sure which one you are referring to. The plant I think of as umbrella plant is a semi-aquatic plant in the papyrus family. It can grow indoors or out as long as it's in water or moist soil. Do you know what else your plant might be called? Did it come with a plant tag?
