I have an Azalea bonsai that's not doing too well. I brought it in to the office and someone proceeded to water it on a daily basis. The bonsai's leaves turned brown.

I want to know how to care for an Azalea. What is the proper care of an Azalea Bonsai? It's about six inches high.

The same aplies to azela.
except it should come back to life once outside.
Do the scratch test to see if its still alive.

Wet Feet

Like most of the rhododendron family, azaleas do NOT like wet feet. Even moisture is the key; every day waterinbg is the reason this one has gone south. In the office is only good as a temporary locale; I wouls move this one into the shade outside ASAP and then to a parrtially sunny location. It may or may not respond; best of luck...
