Chinese Elm - HELP
I recently bought 4 Bonsai's from joebonsai.com. They seem to be a reputable dealer. They were shipped second day UPS and well packaged. Three arrived in great shape (a Ficus, a Schefflera, and a Podocarpus).
The fourth, a Chinese Elm, looked fine right out of the box. The leaves are well attached (not falling off) but are brittle and break/crumble if bent (like fall leaves). Is this normal for this type of tree? The soil was reasonably moist upon arrival and I have been watering it every 2-3 days.
