My boyfriend has a Bonsai tree that is sort of dieing off, i want to help him get it back to life but we're complete amateurs and don't really know what we're doing... We don't even know what kind of tree it is
Can any one help us identify it and maybe make some suggestions on what we can do to help it?
He chose it because he liked the way some of the branches were exposed at the bottom and the twisted shape of the branches at the top.
It stands 11 and a half inches from the top of the pot.
There was some sort of green gunk coating the trunk so i gave it a little scrub with a soft toothbrush and gently flicked off any loose dead leaves but before we do too much to it, we really need to know what on earth we're doing.....
