I have a tree about 12 inches high with a braided trunk. The leaves have become brittle. Can I promote new leaf growth or is it too late? I was away on vacation for two weeks and I thought my son was going to be watering, but I think he watered it before I came home only!

Don't give up yet! Keep watering as you normally do. Don't get carried away and do more damage by overwatering though. The brittle leaves will fall off, but may be replaced with new growth. We'll keep our fingers crossed.
