Q.My schefflera looks sick what can I do?

The Plant is showing signs of drooping and curly leaves. It is still in a small vase I don’t see any roots protruding to the top of the vase.

Should I transplant it?

These plants can be quite particular about their environment. Have you changed anything recently? What is the age of the plant? Sudden symptoms are almost always cause for concern, though.

Overwatering, or lack of light comes to mind. Sudden pH swings can cause these symptoms as well, but so can direct full sun. They are no equipped to deal with that.
Temperatures down into the 50's at night can be a bit chilly for them as well.
