Schefflera cuttings root VERY easily. Place them into some soil and water. They will root within 2 weeks. Just keep them in bright but indirect light and keep the soil SLIGHTLY moist at all times until they show new growth. This article will give you more information on the care of these shrubs: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/schefflera/schefflera-plant-care.htm
