Our tree was BIG and beautiful but seemed like it was outgrowing the pot it was in. I took it outside on a warm day and gave it a bath gently with the water hose and then wiped off each leave to get any dust off. I left for a week and came back to almost every leaf gone. I have given it one teaspoon of the plant food in last weeks watering and It’s still dropping leaves. The tree only gets indirect sunlight and I have it in our warmest room on the sun side of our house. It’s not near a vent and we keep it on 73 inside. I used potting soil that was for indoor pots And for moisture control. I’m wondering if I should move the tree to our back porch which is screened in and shade. It’s very humid in North Carolina with Temperatures in the summer from 80-100 with an even higher heat index. I don’t really want to put it on our back porch but if I need to for it to be revived I will.
Also – for the plant food – 1 teaspoon for 2 cups – should I be giving the tree the full two cups of water once a week?
