Q.

lemon crypress – indoor plant

Zone Post Falls, Idaho 83854 zone 5 | Anonymous added on November 18, 2017 | Answered

I was given two lemon crypress plants from a local grocery store because the needles were dry and apparently dead. They are still green but fall off hen you touch them. I thought I try to save them. I took off all the brittle needles and some needles are still attached. Do I have a chance????? The needles are green but brittle. Any suggestions? Have watered good. Thanks

Give them as much light as possible, and they may come back. This plant typically needs a lot of water, but in their weakened state they won't be using much, so make sure the soil doesn't stay too wet (but doesn't get bone dry either). Here are more tips for caring for lemon cypress:
