can I revive my new bonsai??

I bought this bonsai yesterday from the supermarket it came in a box it was already dried out and all the leaves had fallen off, all the branches look dry, I've scratched around at the Base of the branches and under the bark is green, so is there any chance of survival for the little guy?? Dan

Re: can I revive my new bonsai??


Yes, there is hope I once chopped a Ficus and it took months to finally come around. As long as the trunk is still firm and otherwise healthy it may produce a new shoot somewhere. Keep it watered properly but do not try to overcompensate. If there are other underlying issues that is another story.
