I was thinking too much water too....right now its inside under grow lights, since outside is too cold. I have lights on for 12 hours on 12 hours off ...temp is around 68 with humidity at around 45....i fertilize every other week....i did have a humidifier in there at the beginning of winter, but it went out 3 weeks ago.. The tree has been fine all winter along with my 16 other tropicals i have in here until last wed, when i started noticing yellow leaves and weak ones as well.....

That's definitely a sign of too much water. I would have my lights come on at 8 and they'd go off at night, so you can try to increase the time your lights are on. Just make sure you're letting the soil dry out between waterings.

Check for scale insects, white aphids....the usual bugs. Wouldn't worry too much, once you can get it outside, it should bounce back quick. Maybe some fert with a good bit of iron, could be chlorosis.

Don't worry about @sorce he's a Bonsai Nut Welcome Wagon!!;):D:D:D:D

In full subtropical sun mine drops leaves before the growing season. They seem to only keep some leaves at the tip of branches.

:p

I was about to go off!:eek:

I think you got here before me so you fall outside of my requirement to Welcome you to Crazy!

But you're in it now!

No chances of getting that Humidifier back?

Though, if it was keeping you from seeing the effect of overwatering before....

It may not be great to have again anyway.

For indoor growing I had lights on for 18 hrs, temp around 85 F, humidity between 50 and 75%. Your soil mix looks to be free draining, so unless that's just a top coat of gravel I would think it would be hard to overwater that mix. Is it still dropping leaves? Do you have strong new buds breaking?
