Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Schefflera after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I am worried about this one. It was on my mostly shady front porch for about a year and I thought she was doing great. That was until I brought her inside back in January to keep her out of the super gusty winds we were having. Within just a week or two I noticed lots of new growth sprouting at the top so I decided to keep her inside. Since then she’s been thriving with new, wider growth. You can see the difference in leaves in the picture provided. About a week ago, she started dropping her older leaves and I can’t figure out why. Any ideas??
