From my research, I think I have some kind of a Hawaiian Umbrella Bansai. I have had it for two years or so and it has done fine in my bay window. I recently moved around my living room and set it on a table by a window.. but not in front of it. It is also closer to the fireplace now. Seems like the leaves are dry. The fall of too the touch now. I had not watered it in awhile so I did that a couple days ago. The leaves are still falling off. Here are my questions?
1. Why are the leaved falling off?
2. Does it need to be in front of a window directly?
3. Being 7 feet from my fireplace.. is that bad?
4. Is my pot to small?
5. Do I prune this? What shape does it need to be...?
As you can tell I don't really know what I am doing and I have had terrible luck with ANY plant in the past. This one has lasted so long.. I just want to make sure it doesn't die.. please advise.
