So whats the problem. Well so far I have achived two not so healthy potensai, Oak #001 and Birch #002. For some reason Birch #001 seem to have done fine so far. Could be that it's planted in a clay pot and in a smaller pot which makes it dry out faster. I will replant Birch #001 aswell when I get hold of the proper kitty litter.
You might wonder why am I ruling out the possibilites of a weak plant due to being dug up from the wild. Well first of all I touched the clay and it was soggy gelatinous, that can't really be good if you expect good drainage. Also both pots have been moist for more than a week now without any rain or watering the last few days.
Today I took them out from their spot in the shade an put them in the sun for a couple of hours just to try to dry them out.
