I cut off and transplanted a few small pieces of my schefflera. I keep them watered and fertilized, but absolutely no new growth has come on them for over 6-8 months. They are very healthy and have a good root system, but no new growth. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do to encourage growth?

Try adding a nitrogen rich fertilizer. This should encourage leaf growth. If you have been using a balanced fertilizer, there may be too little nitrogen.
Also, make sure it is getting enough light. This may also retard new growth.
