Hi,

I have a relatively large money tree for about 1 year. I moves 4 months ago and since then she is not doing well. Leaves are getting yellow and dropping one after another (see photoes). New place is getting less light than the previous one. I think I also over water the tree, water quickly drains as soon as I give water. How much water is ok for this size money tree? Please help, how can I save my tree? She had a lot more leaves, now has a little, see photo.

Thanks,
Shazdeh

Welcome Shazdeh. I think there are 2 things going on with your schefflera. It is shocked from the move and the changing conditions and it has outgrown the pot it is in. The water draining right through is a clue for the second. It will certainly need a larger pot. And when you get it out of the current one, you will find the roots growing around in a circle. You will need to untangle those as much as possible and spread them out in any larger pot.
Good luck!
