This schefflera has been limping toward death for a couple of weeks. I sprayed a fungicide about a week ago. Any diagnosis? Any suggestions?

Thanks for the responses. It was repotted last Spring. The tree doesn't seem to be using as much water as when it was healthy, so I've cut back, but the soil still stays wet for long periods of time.

If it's not using water at a normal rate, that implies root problems. I second the earlier suggestion: pull it out and check for fungus or root parasites.
