My small grump tree is not brown but is dropping it’s needles and feels dry to the touch. How can I revive it?
Grump tree is often lemon cypress. If it is in the container from Trader Joe's, repot to a larger pot using a quality potting soil mix. Soak the plant weekly and water in-between soaks if the indoor air is drying it out quickly. It must have bright sunlight; turn the plant frequently so a different side gets sun. If your area doesn't receive bright sunlight, use supplemental lighting.
