Powder Puff Bonsai Suddenly Sick?
We have a beautiful little powder puff bonsai that has been doing great for about 9 months, since we got it. It sits in a sunny window and has been growing big beautiful leaves and a few blooms. Suddenly, last week, the leaves started to get crunchy and dropping off. We haven't changed anything, but maybe missed a day of watering. I watered it right away (usually do it in the evening and let the water soak through the hole for a minute or two and let it drain). It still hasn't recovered and it has been over a week - the leaves are dry and crunchy, even despite moist soil, and it just looks sickly. There are no bugs or anything. After this happened, I watered with a very diluted mixture of nitrogen fertilizer, which I hadn't done in awhile. I'm basically clueless with plants, but this was a gift, and we were so proud that we had kept it alive and thriving for so long! I'd appreciate any advice or input - I've googled endlessly and can't find anything!
