I am new to this forum and I am hoping to get some answers as to why the leaves have started suddenly falling off of my bonsai. I purchased the tree on Oct. 10, and it started loosing it's leaves about a week ago. There are now branches that have no leaves at all. I was told that the way to water was to keep the dish that is sits in full at all times. I was informed not to water through the soil, but just in the dish/tray. I am hoping that you can help me to determine what the problem is so that I can rectify.
