It IS an evergreen tropical. When you say you potted it, does that mean you RE-potted it? Did you cut any roots?

Unless you live in Miami or somewhere else tropical, this tree needs to be inside.

Whatever the cause of the leaf loss, do not water it until the soil becomes dry. Trees without leaves don't use much water.

SmokeyJoe,

have you tried just lightly scratching the bark to see if it is still green?

Normally the Gmelina grows so fast, clip and grow works better.
Later.

SmokeyJoe,

follow Jim's advice on the watering. Let the group know if and when the leaves re-sprout.
I am not sure how much light is needed though - Jim?
Later.
