Hoping someone can help. I was bought a new bonsai as a gift after killing the last one I owned in an unfortunate late night drunken incident. However, the new one does not seem to be doing too well either.
When I got it, around 3 months ago, it had plenty of leave on the branches. Now it has none. It also seems very, very dry and brittle. I'm tempted to give up on it altogether, but it has sprouted these strange green tenticles, which do have leaves. So I guess it's not dead totally.
I have no idea which species it is, how I should care for it, or if it's beyond help and should be chucked in my green garden waste bin.
I've attached a couple of photos here. I've had a go at identifying it myself, but with its lack of leaves this has proved impossible.
If anyone can offer any tips or advice, it would be much appreciated.
