My Big Dave loved Schefflera...there was one in with the monstera for a while but something happened to it...not sure what.

Terratoonie, I was up on the walk-way to the new bus tour structure...looking down.

Catfinch, Schefflera species have a huge aggressive root system...if in a pot they may not get enough water or have enough room for their huge root system. This can cause them to decline.

I bet that is what happened to them..and you know that big Monstera...was putting down its anchor roots and having a free for all in all the other pots that were under it..I ended up moving them all out and into their own spaces.......
