Rooting Schefflera

We have a schefflera that is about 12 ft tall and we wish to bring it in for the winter. Can we root the 5 ft we take off the top in water?

That is alot of plant to try to root. It likely will not take because there would be so much foliage for the plant to try to support without a decent root system for quite some time. I would recommend using the large pruning to take several smaller cuttings and trying to root those.
