Schefflera (umbrella tree)

Just sending this message a second time because I wasn't sure whether it went on the first time. I have an unbrella tree that I've had almost a year now. It's about 8 inches tall now and still growing well. The only thing about it now is that it is starting to lean over to the left of the pot. What should I be doing to it so it doesn't lean too far where it wouldn't end up too far over wher it might make it too heavy on the one side where the pot it's in might go off balance? I'd appreciate some advice. Thanks. Michele

I would suggest you take it out of the pot and repot it so the tree is upright. That will put the rootball at an angle, but the tree will grow straight.
