My Schefflera Plant Is Dropping Leaves Like Crazy.
I moved it inside in October and the light is not ideal, but all other plants are adjusting. Some leaves are turning black and falling others are wilting. I have changed watering pattern with no impact and moved it to various spots in the room to change light. Help!

This should be expected with a rapid change. They are sensitive to this. The best thing that you can do is to put it in a brightly lit area, and only water once the top 4 inches of soil are dry, completely.
Make sure that it stays warm. Anything approaching 50 degrees will start to make them drop leaves. Dropping leaves is also due to the drop in humidity and light, in indoor conditions.
Keep it alive through Winter with light and warmth, while feeding on occasion. Once you can put it back out, you can prune and treat it as normal. It will recover once it has the ideal conditions that it wants back.
