my mother in law got this bonsai as a gift and it looks as if it is dying. it looks like a pineapple top. when she got it, the bulb like bottom was brown with green sprouts that look like spiny palm fronds. now, the base is still brown, but the sprouts are turning a yellowish brown green. i don't know what to do, can you help? OH, the dish it is in is about 4 inches deep, oblong with mossy stuff around the bulb and rocks around the rest. i don't know if that helps or not, and i do know that it was purchased at a local grocery store. thank you so much!!!!
