See i have the same issue with ficus. That and the whole sticky white sap has gotten me away from using them. I was forced to buy a cpl this week because the schefflerras in the size i needed were not to be found yet. They will have tons in another month or two.Schefflera make me crazy! I have had some that live just fine in darker Reptariums, and then have some in screen cages that lose all their leaves and die. No rhyme or reason!
