hi every one,
i bought a bonsai on sale at the local mall and the foliage is green on top
and browning on the bottom i figured it just needed a little (or a lot) of watering is this true or did i waste my money?

It is hard to say without more information. Can you post a picture or several?

And, if it's one of the ubiquitous mall junipers, get it outside, ASAP.

Yeah, Pix would Help.
The roots could be crouded or if there are rcks glued on, the glue could be giving the roots a hard time. and put inin semi-shade outside ASAP. Junipers hate indoors. My experience with them is not very good. so please post some pictures and then we can take it from there.
