i've been reading the posts about juniper bonsais on this website to try to figure out if it's too late for my plant. i got it from a nursery in april and it was doing wonderful for almost two months even though i kept it indoors (didn't know it should have been kept outside). over the summer, i gave it to a friend to keep and she put it on the windowsill of an east-facing window. it was a hot and humid summer in nyc.
when i returned in sept, the bonsai needles were totally yellow and dry. i've been keeping it outside now but am thinking it's dead as it looks the same---dry and yellow. is it possible it went into dormancy stage? if it is dead, is there no way to revive this plant?
also, I'm confused about the outdoor/indoor thing. i read that it is an outdoor plant but if i keep it on my window ledge (south facing), it will get a lot of sun during the day but the temps drop pretty quickly when the sun goes down---won't this be bad for the plant? i live in nyc.
thanks so much!
