My schefflera is 18 years old and has been in the same spot for the last 18 years. Over the last month the leaves are drooping no matter how I water. Can anyone tell me what's wrong and how I can hopefully save my plant?
It looks like the weight of the leaves is too much for the stems.
Your plant likely is not getting enough sunlight and is spindly due to that reason.
You can prune your plant.
