Hi, Fellow Gardeners,

My Schefflera is leggy and doesn't show any signs of new growth in those bare areas. Should I prune her? Open for suggestions and thanks in advance.

Wow you have a super garden that is beautiful. Sure you can prune her and use the pruned cuts for propagating new plants. Make your cuts right above a node so it will re-sprout. After your pruning job give it a drink of water so the wounds will scab over unless the soil is already wet.. Pruning is good for house plants when its done right.

Yes you can prune it to what ever shape that you want. I'd just prune it below the bare stems, also it likes indirect sunlight best.
