I skipped a day of watering some time last week and my new powder puff bonsai (Calliandra tweedii i think, but another site says Calliandra Schultzei) has dropped all of its leaves and on the surface, looks pretty dead.
Is there anything i can do at this point to save it?
The day that I discovered the leaf dropping, I watered it using the immersion method, leaving it for 5 minutes in a bowl of water and have been watering it every day just in case it chooses to put out new leaves, but it's also late in the season, so I'm not sure what to expect.
The roots look the same on the surface, i didn't want to disturb them by digging through them to check. Underneath the bark, the wood in the branches is still green underneath and seems healthy.
I suspect that i have killed it and the tree is just taking its time to figure it out, but I'm hoping I'm wrong and there's something i can do to save it.
