Saving 30 yrs old Bonsai
I recently inherited my grandmothers bonsai tree. My Grandmother has lost her memory to alzheimer's and all but killed it.
according to my memory and my mothers this thing is 30 yrs old. I have pruned it according to instructions online and I have been keeping it in water to revive it. it is growing leaves but very slowly.
Soil: The soil has a white/grey film on the top of it. There are little stones covering to top of some of the soil but they are covered in a brown/rust coloured substance. I added some plant food drops to the water i use (don't know if this is helping)
Tree: I don't know how to identify the tree. It has leaves that feel hard and plastic like. I'll include a photo. I keep it by the window but out of direct sunlight.
Please give me some advice, I will follow it to the T.
