Question: Fall Ilex leaves
Hi I had already posted a question about the Ilex Crenata, well lately there is a problem with the leaves, they are beginning to dry out and fall, even the branches begin to dry out, I made a first thinning out of the dry branches, the plant is always temporarily been inside the house, I wouldn't want the temperature to do the rest, what do you recommend me to do? Apart from the water I give it to him once every 1-2 weeks and the hair that I spray when it is dry I don't know what else to do.
Answer: Fall leaves Ilex
your ilex bonsai should have spent the winter outdoors, possibly covered with a non-woven fabric, or sheltered; the problem lies in the fact that it is too hot in the house and the air is too dry; not being able to move it now, he tries to look for an area of the house that is not very heated and often vaporizes the foliage, to increase the environmental humidity, avoiding to exaggerate with the watering of the ground, since the plant should be in vegetative rest.
