Not quite sure what you’ve done so far, so I’ll start from the beginning.
The soil should be a mixture of 2 or 3 of the following: perilite, vermiculite, peat moss or sand. Use 4-5″ pot. Moisten the soil before inserting the stem cuttings.
You should use about a 6″ inch cutting from the end of an actively growing schefflera branch. Remove the bottom leaves and dip the cut end into some Rooting HormoneRooting Hormone helps plant cuttings produce new roots and is very important to use if you want your propagation attempts to be successful. Always dip the cut end of a stem or leaf into water and then dip it into the rooting hormone before planting it. Tap off any excess powder since too much hormone is worse than too little.. Be sure to shake off any extra hormone. Plant the cutting in the soil about 2″ deep.
