Hello!

My friend gave me this beautiful Fukien Tea Tree bonsai. This is my first ever plant. It was healthy a few days ago - the leaves were complete and a beautiful shade of green.

My bonsai mentor said to put it in the sun a few hours a day but I think I burnt it. I found black spots on the leaves first then it started to turn yellow and fall off. I also found the soil dry so I sprayed water several times last week.

I live in the Philippines. It's summertime here and temperature can get as high as 35C.

Please help me! I need advise how to care for it. I hope I can still save it. I will be forever grateful!

take it to the sink and pour a bunch of water over it gently, use room temp water, filtered or rain water if you have, until it runs out of the bottom holes, then wait a few minutes and do the same thing again, then maybe a third time if you haven't watered it properly in a while. Do this every time the top inch of the soil gets dry
