    Lorax7 Ficus Benjamina ‘Natasja‘ #2 progression

    Home Depot ficus consisting of multiple saplings tied together that I untied, repotted, wired, and grew separately. I just recently repotted and put some of them back together. My intention is to get these to fuse together into one funky pretzel of a tree.

    Yellow leaves! Help please!

    Any idea what could be wrong with our bonsai? She gets watered once a week and has direct sunlight. We’ve had her 4 years and have never had this problem! We recently moved from AL to CO but she’s never outside and we’ve changed nothing. Thank you in advance!
