    You can still cover them. Give the plants a good shake to get as much water as possible off before covering. If it is also still raining, add a plastic sheet over the cloth sheets.

    It sounds like it could be a fungus. Are you seeing spots on the leaves? They would be yellow or brown. Regardless, I would try treating the plant with a fungicide.

    It sounds like it might be root rot. Make sure that the new pot has good drainage and only water when the top of the soil is dry to the touch. Here is more information on root rot: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/treating-root-rot-gardening-tips-for-housplants.htm

    There are some less common varieties of this plant that will bloom indoors. You are lucky to have one. They do not have any special care needs while in bloom.

    There are a few pests that typically affect Schefflera, such as aphids, spider mites and mealybugs. These are all treated with a standard insecticide. I like neem oil, myself. It is safe for people and pets, but very effective on bad bugs. Here is more information on it:
