First and immediately -- Get It Outdoors! It won't survive inside.
Second and just as immediately -- Get all that fertilizer off the soil. That's TOO MUCH!
Third, and important -- don't water on a schedule. Water when the soil feels dry. Keep a chopstick jammed deep into the soil. Remove it daily and feel the dirty end. If damp do NOT water. If dry, water.
Fourth, a prayer or two for this tree may help.

Thanks Jim. Just got home about an hour ago and put the tree outside.This morning I had placed it near a window that I know has a lot of light shining through. I did remove most of the fertilzer too. Didnt know what that was until now.Luckily I do love Chinese food and had some extra chopsticks. I just put on in. I called my girlfriend earlier and asked her to water it with only a half cup of water. When I go home I noticed quite a bit of water in the tray. Good drainage? Well, I will start checking the chopstick from now on. Oh, yes I have said a couple of prayers already. Thanks very much for the help. I hope it gets healthy again. Joe

For aesthetics, sure. They're not functioning leaves any more.

Hi Joe, being a San Antonio Bonsai Club member you should have a book of all the club members...Pick up the phone and call any of them....We really don't bite and we are all friendly folks... Very Happy
The tree needs to be put in shade outside till new leaves start growing...
I will PM you my number....I do expect a call..
Irene
