Hi, they gave me a ginseng bonsai, these days I am noticing that it loses a large number of green leaves, is this normal considering the season? or is it a lack of water? in fact I don’t know how to regulate myself for watering. Thanks

Dear Angela,

ficus ginseng bonsai are evergreen houseplants, so the loss of foliage is certainly due to a problem, probably due to a water imbalance. Throughout the year, these plants love to have moist, not waterlogged, simply moist soil. So in winter you can water it even only sporadically, checking with your fingers if the soil is dry. In the house there is often a very dry climate, so it is good to often vaporize the foliage of bonsai, and most of the indoor plants

ginseng bonsai In this question from our friend Angela we saw why a bonsai sheds leaves greens and we have seen how this problem is most likely related to over-irrigation. Other times, however, it may happen that the leaves first turn yellow and then fall, or that the leaves rot first at the base, then curl up on themselves and then fall.

First of all, when phenomena of this type occur, the first thing to do is to carefully check the fallen leaves and check for insects or parasites on the leaf surface. If we find the presence of parasites and insects we will have to worry about understanding what insect it is, while if we notice something else, such as a superficial fungus or particular spots, we will have to try to understand what fungus, bacteria or virus it is. Sometimes it can happen that a sudden defoliation of the plant is simply due to a cold stroke. The plant subject to the cold can suddenly lose most of its leaves as a reaction to the sudden shock and this happens especially in mid-seasons and when the first colds arrive, or in winter with houseplants, when we leave too much to along the open windows.
