    I noticed some white fungi growing around the base of my bonsai, now there is more along with brown fungi as well. A lot of the leaves are dying and it’s makimg me quite sad the plant hasn’t even gotten to flower for the firs time. I used a fertilizer stick when I first got my plant could this have caused it?

    Could what looks like white fungus actually be an accumulation of fertilizer salts? I don't know enough about bonsai to say how best to fertilize them but I would assume they need very little. A fertilizer stick is a very blunt instrument to use in this situation - not knowing what, if any, nutrients were necessary when you planted the tree. Also, can you say what type of tree it is?
