Thought I would try my hand at a tropical and since schefflera are available and cheap I picked one up. I have read that spring is the time to re-pot. I'm wondering though what the best time to do a heavy chop is. If I plan to re-pot in the spring can I do a heavy pruning in say late winter? The plant is very healthy with a good bit of new growth now. It is in a bright window with my orchids and gets some supplemental light.
