First up, I'd like to say a big HI to everyone.
So happy i've found this site and i'll say thanks now as i am sure one of you guys will come up with some tips for a complete bonsai novice.
I'd been after a Bonsai for a while so imagine my suprise when both my g/f and my old dear both got me one for christmas!!
Both are Chinese Elm and both came with instructions/care guides but contradicted each other in what they were saying.
I've just relocated both to the kitchen as they were living in the window and above a radiator.
One of the tree's has really come back to life now i've moved it and seems to be doing well, but the other really doesnt seem to be doing very well and looks like its on its way out!!
The leaves are very brittle, dried out and brown and there also seems to be some sort of mould on the top of the soil. There is a white substance on the soil which as I've said looks like mould.
If anyone has any ideas or tips i would be grateful if you could share them, i'd be gutted if my tree died and so would the g/f as its the one she got me!!
thanks in advance
