Help, any one out there. I purchased a Michelia maudiae for CAD $48.00 in April this year. The nursery advised me to let it dry out completely before I watered it. It sits beside a west window with a skylight above. However, it is over to one side so that it never gets direct sunlight. For the first 2 months, it kept its shape and gave me new leaves. Suddenly, I noticed leaves getting brown around the edges and then dropping off. After 2 weeks, I only have 2 original leaves. I have flushed the plant after reading on this forum that maybe it is a salt buildup problem. However, what I have left is bare branches with 2 original leaves and 1 bare branch with what I hope new growth starting. Some branches are not green anymore, but I am loath to cut them. Any tips or advice will be appreciated.
