4 new trees need help

nealmartinJune 3, 2013

I recently started these four bonsai plants I don't know what to do now they seem to be getting spots. The Oak has small brown spots and the maple has similar spots.the one second to the right I do not know but it is turning yellow. What I think to be an Elm all the way to the left seems to be okay. I have kept them consistently moist and they get a lot of Sun. Any advice would be welcomed....also the last week has been very very hot and sunny

They need to be outdoors, in a fast-draining soil that won't stay soggy after you water, and in diffused sunlight (dappled or open shade) until they are established. They also need to be fertilized regularly. Soil moisture level would be damp0 - never wet or soggy - think of the moisture level of a well-wrung sponge & you have it.
