dropping leaves on interior azalea
Posted: Mon Oct 30, 2006 8:52 am
My azalea (satsuki) is dropping leaves. Branches seem to be drying up even though the soil is kept moist. This is my first bonsai of this kind. What am I doing wrong?

We would need to know a bit about what your doing to answer that question Dorothy.Dorothy wrote: ...What am I doing wrong?
Dorothy, I took the liberty of quoting your PM to me [The more the merrier wrt diagnosis, Ideas, Etc...]thanks for answering. The tree was doing great until the beginning of Sept. It had been in the same place since spring 2006, in a shaded window on the south side of the room. I don't see any insects or other problems except that the leaves starting wilting- due to lack of water(I thought). So I started watering more- maybe I gave it too much water. Anyway I've moved it to a cooler room and give it less water. I did not change the soil when I bought the plant because it was flowering. It's roots are not completely covered by soil but I thought that was normal. It seems to be holding on for now -, gets less water and lots of light but nothing direct. Don't know if you can help but thanks for trying.
