leaves are not a healthy green on Schefflera.

I have a 7' Schefflera and the leaves aren't a dark, healthy green as other Scheffleras I have seen(they are a pale green. Can you tell me what I can do to get a beautiful, dark-green leaf? I fertilize during the growing season and it is in a sunroom that gets good sun but not direct. Any help would be appreciated.

Schefflera likes medium light conditions, and it sounds as if yours is getting medium light. Your plant is pretty tall, and can become lanky and less green at that height. Check the conditions under which Schefflera like to grow: average warmth, not below 55 degrees and not above 70 degrees; bright light but not direct light; lots of water, except in winter, with frequent light misting of leaves; no cold drafts. Have you repotted it every two years? That's important to the health of this indoor tropical tree.
