Hi Rhonda,

Yellow and green Hawaiian Schefflera
Hawaiian Schefflera

Your plant is called a Hawaiian Scchefflera. Most problems with this plant are caused by over watering or not enough bright indirect light. If the variegated green leaves are falling off and new growth is turning black, the problem is too much water. If the stems are getting bare and the leaves are far apart, the plant needs more light. You can read more about  Hawaiian Schefflera care tips and the plant pests and diseases that might affect it in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
