Dying looking Chinese Elm

Post  Bonsai Jay on Sat Jul 02, 2016 3:00 am

[center]Miyagi
Name: Chinese Elm/Ulmus Parvifolia
Age: 8 Month Approx
Beautifully healthy young Elm from a reputable nursery approx 6 months ago when I bought.

Obviously I made a post much like this one, I leave a linkBonsai Hell
But to summarize I was an indoor Bonsai approach and I made critical mistakes that were listed there if you wish to read the shameful backstory.

The point is I believe I have adapted my plans to agree accepting all the generous help and suggesting provided my members. Gerneral consensus was to a more natural approach. Key stuff was...

CHANGES MADE
1.No placement on a heat resistant shelf above a boiler
2.No more using 300w Artificial Grow Lamp
3.Dont just spray the trunk and foliage as watering them

WHAT IM CURRENTLY DOING
1. My Elm to be taken outside, each morning 8am & left in the open sun all day until 10pm . Inside at the kitchen window (fear of the possible - cold)
2. Miyagi appeared crammed and overgrown with his Bonsai pot. Re potted him 1 month back.
Mica Bonsai Pot Oval - 29cm x 20.5cm x 9cm
3.Unsure about getting the feeding right, liquid, dilutions,capsule... I think ill type a list of question on feeds in a more relevant forum.
4. I relocated Miyagi Chinese Elm to Oldmeldrum to utilize the country open garden

This is the much larger size pot I replaced him to.

These are not pics of my actual tree (as he is out in the country garden) but the pics are show almost exact issues I noticed about a month ago. Since then Ive re potted him, fed once a week with bonsai mix in his water, but for some reason I see a slow decline like a dying tree Sad.

Moving a tree regularly inside & outside is not a good idea and stresses it unnecessarily - Chinese Elms will do better permanently outside even in winter, if your concern is prolonged severe frosts then consider a sheltered location for that period. No need to coddle it at this time of year!

Leave it outside.
Water thoroughly when needed.
