I am back with a recent picture of my chinese elm tree. It has been around two weeks since I received my elm, some of you might recall it did not have any leaves back then. Time does seem to fly for my elm, since then he has exploded with new foliage. As soon as I saw this process start I bought it some fertilizer 14-14-14. And overall it seems to be handling the Puerto Rico climate well enouph. I say overall becuase as you may see there are some of the new leaves turning yellow. Based on what I have learned it seems like I might be over watering. Yes I have done some of the no, no's, that I have read about like watering every other day and not really checking if it is dry. Any one want to second my opinion in regards to the over watering scenario? Just write back and say "I told you so!". Other than that it seems like my elm is doing ok. Thanks for your input on this issue, have in mind I will keep an open eye on your remarks since I really want to learn how to keep little old elmo shiny green.
Wow what a diference just take a look at my original post:
these yellow leaves do not seem normal being that they are around a week old: (What is the normal shedding period for elms, any one know?)
Here he is in all his glory... could use some tips on pruning...
