Ficus bonsai dropped all its leaves & branches?
I bought a Ficus Microcarpa bonsai last year that was very healthy and had deep green leaves. It has been growing well for a long time. I went on holiday for a week and thought it could take care of itself - but when I came home, every single leaf was dead! I thought the branches were dead so I cut them off, but they were still alive!
I couldn't believe it!
It was in a room at the back of the house where it gets enough light. I moved it to the greenhouse to get more sun and be warm. There is only the trunk left, I scratched it to see if it was green and it is. I water it once a week and the soil is always moist. It was still moist when I came home.
It doesn't have any ariel roots.
It was twice as big as it is now.
Is there any way to get my Ficus to grow it's branches back again? Maybe grafting a Ficus Benjamina on the Microcarpa might work?
