Is my Bonzai Dead/Dying?

JamesGouldJuly 16, 2013

I know that there are a million thread like this already, but I'm worried that my bonzai is Dead/Dying, I've attached a picture of it.

Basically the leaves are almost all brown at this stage, its my first plant a Zanthorxylum, my mum bought it for my birthday at my request, but I obviously don't have a green thumb :(

I think i've been over watering it and leaving it on the window sill during a heat wave probably wasn't a very good idea either -.-

Is there anyway I can save it? or should i recycle it and start over when I'm better prepared?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

hopefully someone can give you some good advice about saving it. but being that its your first plant, i suspect you are on to something with the overwatering. depending on the light situation, maybe if it went from inside some store to directly in a bright window, perhaps it should have been eased more into it? other than that i dont think you could give it too much light if its indoors
