I just received a bonsai tree as a gift for Mother's Day and it's losing its leaves. I found the insert information card which says the type of bonsai is "Bougainvillea"
At first I had the bonsai facing east & lots of leaves fell, then I read I should leave the tree outside but the leaves continued to fall so I brought the tree back inside and placed it on a window sill facing south. I should also note that I live in the Poconos.
The leaves seem to be OK but I was wondering if I should trim all the dead leaves off & hope that they come back next season?
The bonsai continues to lose leaves. I'm worried it will die. Please advise.
