I had been talking about how I wanted a bonsai allot I guess. Enough that my sweet husband decided to order me one. When i found out I panicked. My poor husband. He tried to do a good thing and I freaked on him.
Anyways, I asked him what kind and he showed me where he ordered it from because he didn't know. I looked and it was a ficus. So I tried to cancel the order but it said the order was already processed. It is very cold here and we have snow on the ground. I saw it was shipped from Memphis and I was expecting the arrival of a dead tree.
It arrived safely and it looks great. I have had it for over a week I guess. It said it would drop 20% of its leaves and I honestly haven't noticed any yet. I water it daily and I have a florescent light bulb for it. It said it simulates midday sunlight 5000K.
I am worrying though because the leaves are starting to turn yellow.
So now I wonder. Am i watering it too much? Is the light bulb not giving it the kind of light it needs? Is it possibly turning yellow because of its cold trip? I don't want it to die. I wonder if the soil is too spongy. Sheesh I don't know!
Here is my tree when i first got it.
Here are the leaves now..
