Hayake is a term used in bonsai to describe the burning of leaves. It refers to leaf tips running dry or leaves turning brownish or yellow and occurs because water absorbed from the root will not go to the leaves. Hayake can be caused by various factors, such as insufficient watering, excessive sunlight, low humidity, pests, diseases, or nutrient deficiencies. To prevent hayake, bonsai growers should monitor the soil moisture, adjust the light exposure, mist the foliage, inspect the plant for signs of damage, and fertilize regularly.
