    I've seen them on TV in Australia and they grow into REAL trees, not like some crappy dogwood or something. HUMONGO!

    When you cut a stem do they start multiple growth points from that cut?

    Yeah, that's what I meant, but you got the point. Thanks for the reply.

    Your first plant is the cultivar Schefflera arboricola 'Trinette', and your second one appears to be plain Schefflera arboricola. These are what are called Dwarf Umbrella Tree.

    There are many species in this genus, whose classification is still in flux, your plants were recently considered to be in the genus, Brassaia.

    See:Wikipedia on Schefflera
