I recently saved a prize bonsai which suddenly dropped 90% of it’s leaves. Turns out the kids had left it out in the cold wind while caring for my plants. I used homeopathic Aconite and Silica together in a spray bottle – 2 sprays, 3 days apart and suddenly there were new leaves everywhere. I wish I had taken a before and after photo because you wouldn’t believe the luxurious foliage 8 weeks later. The wonders of homeopathy!!
