I love plants and i'm having trouble taking care of a bonsai. It is an Ulmus Elm. It was doing fine until the day i trimmed it. Since then it is growing extremely slowly; the new leaves are turning yellow and then drying out despite the fact that my elm is watered regularly and exposed moderately to sunlight. The weather here is moderate, with hot summers and cold winters. We get good amounts of rain during 2-3 months a year.
Also, one of the larger branches with many ramifications looks quite dead. What's the best course of action in dealing with this branch?
