Help my Arbicola Bonsai is dying!!

Help!
My Arbicola Bonsai plant is dying! The leaves and stalks are turning black. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I bought the bonsai from someone who grows them and she has the right soil percentages. There is good drainage and I water it only when it gets dry. I checked the roots to make sure they didn't need to be trimmed as well, and they were fine. I really need some suggestions. Please Help!

When a Schefflera is overwatered the leaves will turn black. Hold off on the water and snip the black leaves off. Make sure the pot is not standing in water.
