I have had a Bonsai Banyon tree for about 5-6 years. I bought it at about 10" tall and the trunk is abut 1. 5" around, so a pretty mature plant. It sits in an east facing window and has done fine, tho not growing much. About 2 weeks ago, it was a little wilted and looked like it needed water. Not the first time this has happened, so I wasn't concerned. Even after watering, it was still wilted. About 2-3 days later the leaves turned yellow, and now are falling off. I have a small aloe plant next to it, which has always been there and no other plants in the house are sick. Any suggestions what I can do to save it?? Thank you for your help.
It may have root rot. The symptoms look alot like underwatering. This article will help:

I received a 3 year old bonsai gardenia plant, which is 12 inches, from FTD. It has buds on it. I live in Las Vegas, NV. No Humidity indoors or out. Right now it will hit 100 degrees. I have no southern facing windowsills that I can put the plant on. I tried putting 6 icecubes to melt on top of the plant and the plant is on a tray with pebbles. From the first day the plant dropped leaves (yellow). Over 100 leaves have now dropped. How do I take care of this?

My bonsai Japanese maple is drooping. I have watered. I had to move it because our new baby Siamese kitten was playing with it, chewing and digging in the dirt. Now it is dropping leaves and drooping. My husband and I really love this plant. What can we do? Thank you.
I suspect that it may have root rot. This article will help determine if that is the problem: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/treating-root-rot-gardening-tips-for-housplants.htm With a new kitten, you may also have a case of a misplaced litter box. If you see signs that the kitten is peeing in the soil, replace the soil and try to keep her away from the plant. I put pine cones on top of the soil of my houseplants to keep my cats out of them.
I just recently bought a bonsai tree at Wal-mart, and well it's starting to crumble. It's not turning brown or anything; its leaves are just falling off. I water, feed, and give it lots of sunlight. I was just wondering what I should do for it. PS. It is a spiny greek juniper
