I'm new to the forum, and to bonsai. I recently purchased a Chinese Elm, and have had it for about 2 weeks. I live in an apartment on the top floor with lighting that is not so ideal. For a week or so I was getting it as much sun as possible and watering it daily. It was doing ok, but then about 3 days ago i began to put it out on our roof (the only spot i have that is truly outside) for the day while I'm at work, and it gets lots of direct sun there. It appeared to do much better, but then i didn't water it for two days while still giving it sun because i was afraid of over-watering it. At the end of the second day, it was looking very sad, with pale-green, extremely brittle leaves that fall off to the touch. It has been two days since then, and i've been watering it about 4-5 times a day and spraying it trying to revive it. I assume it is just a lack of water that is hurting it. but now it has been 2 days of heavy watering and misting, and it still is dry and losing leaves. Our apartment pretty hot and humid, could it be those 2 days of full sun and no watering have damaged it? I recently read how its fatal to let the Chinese Elm dry out and am now worried. Is there any hope? Al help would be appreciated. Thanks.
