I have one, and they like to be always moist. So if they are drying out, that's why. Also, they like hours of direct light. So if it's not sunny where it is, then you need a grow light. Mine is in direct light right now. But if not it's under a bright grow light. Before I learned that it was happening to me also.
We recently had to say goodbye to our bonsai after it had sadly been neglected while I was recovering from a surgery. They definitely like full sunlight and moisture. Mine had been moved to a window with poor sunlight, near a vent so the soil dried out way too fast. I'm no expert, but I'd say maybe check the roots just to check what the issue could be
Your plant card says he’s far from a window. I would suggest getting a plant light or moving to where he can receive some bright light. You will be shocked at what proper lighting can do for a plant. Good luck πŸ’šπŸŒ±
