I recently inherited a potted schefflera -- its in a pot in a sunny window, north facing, so pretty much no direct light. I'm being careful about watering, because the pot doesn\'t drain. Bur the leaves are steadily turning brown and falling, off is if burning from exposure and lack of water. It has new growth coming, I\'m really at a loss!
