Hi there,

About a month ago I bought this Chinese elm.
I've hard pruned and re-potted the plant.

Every now and then some of the leaves show some dark spots.
Sometimes this are small/new leaves, sometimes older ones.
The amount of leaves is relatively small. However, since I hard pruned the tree, there are relatively little leaves on the tree.
Up until yesterday I used to mist/spray the leaves wet every day, and water from above the tree (wetting the leaves)
Do you guys think this is black spot? Or is this normal for the plant to shed some leaves like this?

kind regards,

wojt333

I don't think this is black spot.
As all my Elms are outside and I do water from above and never got any fungal issues, I am not 100% sure, but yours looks ok to me.

While being away on Saturday, I came back home on Sunday, with this as result:



There are loads of fresh buds on the tree, and quite some of them are shooting as well.
Yet in two days, these leaves went from fully green to as shown in the picture.

Does anyone have experience with this?

kind regards,

Misting the leaves will not be helping, and if you are not watering as well then that also will not help. Pruning wiring and re potting all at once is not a good idea, and it does not need wiring either. I think it is reacting to all the "abuse" and needs time to recover. Put it in a sheltered spot in the garden and wait
