Hello to all on the bonsai forum
I have had my bonsai tree now for only 2 weeks. The trunk and new leaf growth look healthy, but the tree has lost two thirds of its leaves in just 2 weeks since I bought it. Is this due to the extremely hot weather we have had.? I water the tree as told to in leaflet and have fed the tree once upto date. The leaves that are falling off seem to have brown patches on and on average the tree is loosing 20-30leaves a day. There are new shoots growing on the tree at the top of the stems and also in some of the areas where the leaves have fallen. The new leaves are light green in colour and look healthy. I have also noticed that in the soil I can sometimes see very tiny little crawlies, but not many of them. I will be devostated if my tree dies as I have always wanted a bonsai and I have taken such good care of him. Please anyone who can help or give me tips as what to do??? Is it normal for a tree to loose so much of its foilage???
