Q.Saving My Lemon Cypress Houseplant :(
My lemon cypress feels dry to touch and seems like brown needles appear. I just got it last week. Been watering them on regular schedule. Is it because of the insufficient sunlight or overwatering? Can it still be saved? Please help.

Likely, overwatering. Plants should never be watered on a schedule, unless you know exactly how much water that your plants consume. Rather, you will want to water once the soil has dried down to about 2 inches. The tree can stand to go longer without watering, but they are sensitive to disease. Watering too much will allow disease to take over.
I would treat with a fungicide. This article will help:
