Alrighty, so my wife bought a bonsai tree/plant thing, about 5 months ago, and we're trying to both identify it, and also analyse whether the thing is still alive. We fear that it's dead, but would love to sprinkle some life back into the thing if it's alive at all.
So my questions are,
A) how do I know if it's alive or dead?
B) what is this thing? what kind of bonsiai
C) if it is alive, how can we make it almost jump out of it's pot, we want to give it some real life.
We water it, we even spray the leaves, but the leaves are solid as a rock, although green, and it is dropping them from time to time. The plant does not get much if any direct daylight as we live in a place without any and we do not have a garden... aka. basement apartment, although we keep it by the windows in the kitchen.
