I've recently purchased a bonsai as a gift for a friend, and it's really, really not doing well. See photos here:
It's a bit hard to tell from the photos, but the leaves are turning a yellowish/white in a speckled pattern, and the really bad ones are curling up. I've been watering it by soaking the pot in water for ten minutes once a week, sometimes twice a week (because I thought that the leaves were drying up because it wasn't getting enough water).
Any advice would be really, really appreciated!
