Bottom heat (25C) plus light seems to be optimum for Schefflera germination though they grow fast with just bottom heat in total darkness. I have germination straight from berry within 1 week that way.

After 1 week I have 3 seeds germinated with bottom heat and light, 2 from bottom heat and no light and nothing from the others. Too early to make a statement though. One seedling looks elongated tbh and may not go on grow on to maturity.

And without removing the flesh before sowing?

Just straight into sterile compost (compost and Perlite). I literally put the seeds from the berry into the soil. Seems to work a treat. The soil is quite damp. I cover the pots with cling film and just leave them to it.
