Got a nice Jade Bonsai a few weeks ago and watered it only once from the top after about two weeks including a few drops of fertilizer. The tree is placed out of direct sunlight in the middle of the house with an ambient temperature of about 80 F.
I did however keep water in the ceramic tray that I placed under the pot containing the tree since I read on some Bonsai seller's website that this is good practice.
Three weeks after the first watering the tree is now loosing a lot of leaves and this has me concerned. The leaves are green and plump and there is new growth on the branches.
Does the tree get watered by absorption of the water in the tray? If so I have obviously over watered. I have now stopped putting water in the tray and hope for the best.
What have I done wrong and what do I do next?
