Hello everybody,
I have my schefflera about a year and a half now. About 5-6 months ago the new growth started having dark brown spots on them but they managed to develop anyway. The spots are still visible on the leaf. Currently, all the new little leaves that start growing become brown and die off. The plant is in a sunny spot, I water it regularly but also am careful not to over water. In my apartment the water is very hard so I leave it to sit overnight before I water my plants. Recently I started watering the schefflera with bottled water but this also doesn't help... Can you please give me some tips and advice? Here are some photos:

It looks like insect damage to me, probably some type of scale insect. I would spray with Neem Oil. It won't hurt anything and if it is scale it will cure your problem. I don't think it is a watering issue.
