    Reviving a gifted serissa

    In November last year I was gifted a Serissa - while the tree is beautiful and I have been casually interested in bonsai as an art form, it is my first ever tree (and one I never would have gotten myself). It is extremely temperamental, the first month or so in my care it acclimatised well and...

    Serissa Foetida and Light/Placement

    I have just purchased a Serissa and am wondering about its placement (I am in southern Ontario by the way).

    Serissa Foetida leaves are brown (not crisp) and falling

    I got this Serissa for a month and a half, did a repoting, outside, got some hours of direct sun every day, soil always humid. My problem is that the leaves are getting brown-yellowish, not crisp and keep falling. What could be? Can I cut the yellow leaves to increase the growth of new ones?

    Hi guys! I just got a serissa from a garden centre yesterday. I got a few yellow leaves, which is normal from what I've read because it was just relocated.
