About three months ago I bought a beautiful kind of bonsai willow called Patio Salix 'lona', which lives in my living room beside the window with sunlight during the second half of the day. It has been looking nice and happy during the whole summer, but about a week ago we went out and could not water it for about 5 days. When we came back, the leaves were hanging, so I put enough water. But after that, it seems to be dying as the leaves turn dark brown and they just dry.
Now, half of the tree is naked and the other half still have leaves and I can see some new green spots on the branches (which give me hope).
It is also the beginning of the autumn, maybe is part of the season... maybe I put too much water after I came back home, maybe it needs a bigger plant pot, or maybe my lovely tree is dying?? :-/
I would like to know how to take good care of it.
Can you help me?
Here I attach a photo of my tree when it was looking beautiful and happy.
Regards and thank you!
