Hi, I'm new to the forum but not new to the Bonsai realm. I have had 2 junipers that have previously died after re-potting (this is another issue that I have to question you guys on). I have had my Pom tree since mid May, kept it in indirect sunlight all summer with constant, every other day waterings. It's endured the heat and direct sunlight (noticed by a few brown leaves) but made it nicely through.
I recently took it inside because of the weather turning somewhat cooler, though it's only started to get hotter now...this is tough. So I took it in and soaked it all the way through, until it came out of the bottom of the pot.
1) Was this a smart thing to do being that it's only had constant, every other day watering rather than one good soaking?
2) Did the soaking cause the leaves to fall off or is it on its deathbed (it's not extremely cold on Long Island just yet so the leaves should still be on there)
3) My room does not get any sunlight, only gets light from the outside, no real sunshine, was this causing the leaves to fall off?
Just some info, it's a 2 year old Pomegranate tree that has seen plenty of pomegranate potential, but no real buds. It almost looks like the pic below sans the buds...One thing to note, I don't like what the tree sellers are doing now, they put little green fertilizer pellets on top of the soil...yes it's good but you can't necessarily know how you're doing with the thing until they run out and then the trees aren't used to not having the pellets, understand?
