Question by ☻☆REBEL DEVIL☆☺: Chinese Elm Bonsai tree – why are the leaves turning yellow?
I just bought a chinese elm bonsai tree. I decided to change the soil to miracle gro. However leaves started to turn yellow and now I have too many yellow leaves. Even the new small leaves are turning yellow. Is this result of new change or could it be something else? What can I do to save my tree?
Answer by The Muse
The plant has been TRAUMATIZED by being moved and then TRAUMATIZED by the soil change. Please refrain from making any more changes in this little plant’s life. Chinese elm is one of the few plants that can be cultivated as an indoor or outdoor bonsai so you need to keep it where it was intended. Please take a look at this site for the appropriate care.
