I'm having some more trouble with my sweet plum.

I suspect its a fungi infection although maybe it's just scorched from the sun? I keep her on a south facing window most of the time (I live in Ireland... there's never strong sun... or at least this is what I thought, maybe my bonsai thinks differently).

I've noticed the branches are wilting too but there's plenty of new growth.

If it is a fungi, will any fungicide do? Does the bonsai nut hive mind have any favourite fungicide brands?

Second, does anyone have any good bonsai care book recommendations? Maybe one specifically for sweet plum?

Much love x

Forget if it was spoken of before....

But these are one of those toughted as good for indoors, but really isn't.

That's probably your only problem.

Some fresh Irish air oughta do it fine.

Maybe some Whiskey for the practitioner!

It looks quite wet; how do you water it? Do you have a fan you could point at it?

Looks fungal... air conditions in MOST indoor spaces designed for HUMAN habitation are quite unideal for plants... trees ESPECIALLY.

Get it outside, see if you can’t “get it’s legs underneath it”.. go slow with direct sun exposure.. 1 hour increasing intervals daily until you hit that 5-6 ish mark..

Hmm.. this just dawned on me.. do you have access to outdoors?

EDIT:..Nevermind.. I see your “outside”, traveller.

NICE AVATAR!!!!!!!!!
Thanks! Figured I should stop being a "T".

On the thread topic, I didn't suggest a fungicide because if I remember, most are preventative. It's probably overall healthier for the tree to provide it with better conditions (air circulation, soil aeration) than to keep fighting with fungicide.

Do you mist this tree? Is that why the glass is wet?
Do you water/spray this tree every day?
For me the tree 'looks' overwaterd.
Does the tree still has healthy roots with white tips?
