Hi! I bought an tiny elephant bush plant from a general store(?) a week ago and leaves just keep dropping. There's one branch on the plant that was completely bare when I got the plant. Will leave start growing on it???

I've already repotted it into a terracotta pot (because I think it was started to get root bounded) but haven't replaced it with fasting draining soil because I've already moved it around too much without knowing I shouldn't (I'm new to plants..)

Thanks!

When you repotted the plant do you remember what the roots looked like? Also do you recall what the base of the plant looks like? Can you take a picture from where the base of the plant meets the soil?
