My husband has inherited a bonsai tree (unknown type)from his brother, although it is looking rather unwell (perhaps even dead).
I don't think it has been cared for properly and I'm looking for some advice as to what I should do with it - if anything at all.
From what I can gather, it has been kept inside, neglected and not watered and to top it off - his brother is a smoker. It has leaves, but they're all crispy and dead.
I've only had it a couple of days, and I've read on the internet that it should be watered 3 times a dayand the leaves should be sprayed with water. so I've been giving it a good drink and this morning I put it outside to get some air. is all this work in vain, or is there any chance the tree might get better??
