What kind of soil is it in? How often do you water?

Hi,  I was given a recommendation by an expert in growing ficus bonsai from Porto Rico.  He uses only lava rock for soil.  So I tried this with my ficus and they have flourished!   It seems to me that garden soil has held too much water and is killing your bonsai.

If this were my ficus I would try to save the rest of the tree by taking it out of this soil and cutting back any rot you find; then transplant into a free flowing gravel such as lava.

Good luck!
