I have a "WalMart bonsai" tree w/ the gnarled trunk and small oval
leaves. It's suddenly losing leaves, they dry up in one area and fall
off. Haven't changed anything...however been overcast and not getting as
much quality sunlight. PLEASE e-me or post any diagnosis. THANKS!

Most bonsai need to be watered several times a day, depending on their species
and requirements. I have no idea what a knarled trunk and small oval leaves
means. It could be anything.
The biggest mistake people make is trying to grow bonsai inside when the plant
is not an inside plant.
We need to know what KIND of plant it is. It's requirments depend on
if it's a tropical INDOOR type or outdoor type. *Sounds* like a watering
issue, *maybe* not enough. If Walmart bought them without proper lables
they should be scolded. Try to gove us more info...
'they dry up in one area' sounds like root rot. Then you should give less
water and change soil. Best bonsai soil is Akadama. You can mix it with
sand or lava granulate, then surplus water can drain and soil is good
aerated, so roots can't rot anymore. Furhtermore you should be very
economise with fertilisers!
