|I just got this for a stellar deal...or atleast I think so! It was only $12.99! Just the pot, alone, would probably be $5-$10 at Lowe's, I imagine. It was the only one, so I grabbed it and pulled it in a second cart along behind me as I made my way to the checkout line wondering what it was that I was taking back, but happy it was about to be mine.|
I feel like this one should be an easy one for me to figure out online, but after browsing hundreds of Google photos for "houseplant", "houseplant tree", etc... I'm left without any answers. This seems like a common one, but I have no idea. Is it a ficus? A rubber tree relative?...

|Schefflera arboricola variegata|
Yours just has less yellow variegation on it than others, which I believe occurs due to lower light situations.

I suppose I should have known; I have a baby schefflera in a 4" (?) pot...
I didn't know that's how big they get, though! Oh boy! ...unless my green one is a dwarf/compact cultivar of some sort?

| It's okay.|
You are onto something. There are two species of Schefflera most familiar to houseplant growers, S. arboricola being the dwarf variety.
This is the other, which has huge leaves compared to S. arboricola and gets much larger:
Umbrella Tree (Schefflera actinophylla)
