Hi Greg!greg27 wrote: ↑January 21st, 2022, 12:26 pm Hi Lazac, it's always interesting to read about people growing Aussie natives overseas so please do keep us updated, even if your tree suffers rather than thrives. There's another member on here growing a casuarina in Sweden; those updates are always a good read.
We're still learning about the best way to grow our natives as bonsai so it's even better when people in other places are trying to learn about them too.
Thank you for the answer! I brought some update about the last 2 days. The foliage is still green, leafe dropping happens only if I touch the tree, and the fallen leafed are from the inside and lower level of the foliage. Maybe the light was not enough for her, because in the first 5-6 days I did not put it under the lamps, just at the window seal.
I made some photos about the tree and about the inner leafes. The soil is constantly moist now, I water it more frequently, and it really drinks incredible much water.
And I see new buds at almost every branches.
I think I have felt in love with leptos, even if they are so fussy, so I just ordered another one from a nursery from Italy. its not a pre bonsai, just a nursery stock tree, but in other flower color variety than mine.
I attach some photos about the current status of my tree and also about the new one which will come.
