Can it be saved? There are no brown needles. It's only been indoors. Isobel

When mine looked like that it had bit the dust, but I kept on watering just in case. (didn't help) It should be watered when soil is dry, and it should be kept on a humidity pebble tray. Lack of humidity can be its doom, as well as heat from a fireplace or furnace.

Your watering may be too much or too little. I've included two articles about their care.
