Question: 58-5201
My Schefflera is turning yellow. There is no sign of insects. What could it be? Jerry, Quaker Hill,CT

Mort's Answer:
Most folks water too much in November. House plants require a minimal amount of water unless they are in bloom. It is rare to see an umbrella tree bloom in a pot. You should barely keep palms, schefs and succculents alive in the winter. They are near dormancy until the days get longer in January. Always let a sleeping plant lie.
