Q.How can I revive my lemon cypress?

rrysa added on September 1, 2019 | Answered

I bought a lemon cypress 3 weeks ago, on the first week, it was doing pretty well. But on it’s second, I noticed it was turning brown.
Now the top part’s completely brown and the leaves are dry. Should I trim the top off?
How do I revive this?

It sounds like it was overwatered, and is suffering from an infection. Once you start noticing large portions of the plant dyeing off, then it is not going to be worth salvaging. It will never recover its shape, nor will it look very pretty anytime soon. It is best to start over in this case.

The best thing will be to prevent this in the future.

This is done by ensuring that they plant's container has plenty of drainage holes to allow extra water out, and that the soil in the container is allowed to dry out thoroughly down to at least 2 inches, but don't let it dry out completely throughout the container. This will prevent future occurrences.
