A commercial potting soil should be sufficient for your Schefflera plant.
I do caution you on the size pot, generally you should only go up one size from the existing container.
Too large of pot can lead to overwatering and root rot. Make sure the soil is drying between waterings.
Also check the amount of light your plant is receiving. Too little sunlight can lead to a floppy plant.

Pruning can help a leggy or overgrown plant.
