I bought a Bonsai a couple of months ago and I'm struggling to look after it. It shold look like the one below (a chinese pepper) but my leaves are continually falling off :( I read somewhere it likes light but not direct sunlight so it sits on a north facing window sill, so it gets plenty natural light. I feed it bonsai feed every 10-14 days. At first I thought I was over watering it, little and often (as the cermic pot wasn't very good at retaining the water). Now I've tried just plonking it in the kitchen sink for 10 minutes, once a week. None of these things seems to be having a positive effect.
I don't want to give up on it, can anyone help??
