Hi all, first time poster here and complete Bonsai newbie so any help would be greatly appreciated!
At the weekend I bought a Bonsai tree from a local garden centre... helpfully it was labelled 'Shanghai Mix' so I'm not really sure what it is. A quick trawl on the internet shows that it could be some form of ligustrum - it looks relatively similar to the below image:
I am however no expert. When I get home from work I'll put up some photos of the actual tree.
Anyways, after a few days of it being in my flat it seems to have developed a problem. There are new growths of leaves coming through but they are all curling back on themselves. The main body of leaves did look ok, but this morning they seem a bit 'softer' than they were. I've been watering the plant daily but does this sound like it needs a soak? I've noticed when I do water the plant the water does seem to run down to the edges of the container, and also the soil isn't exactly bonded to the pot.
Any suggestions would be really helpful, I'm pretty terrible with plants as it is and I was hoping that this poor little tree wouldn't be the latest one to suffer at my hands!
