I got a Chinese Elm in December and it had been doing great with lots of new growth (I keep it inside next to a north-facing window, and the room has skylights so there's a fair amount of ambient light throughout the day).
I went away for two weeks and left it with a friend, but I think it has been quite neglected. It was next to a south-facing window and I think it was under-watered because the soil was pretty much bone-dry when I got it back and most of the leaves had dried out/gone yellow.
I submerged it in water for about half an hour when I got it home and cut off all the dead leaves. It still has quite a few green leaves on it, so I think it should be alright, but I wanted to ask if anyone can give me any advice on how to maximise its chance of survival, e.g. should I avoid fertilising for a while, should I repot it ect.?
Thanks for any help.
Edit: I live in London where south-facing windows get the most daylight.
