Reviving a bonsai tree revives the soul
Few things hurt the eyes and heart more than a bonsai tree that needs urgent attention. In the same way, we go through daily trials and tribulations, and many of us still bear the scars of past pains. You may not know this yet, but reviving a bonsai tree is one way you can also mend your soul.
There are ways to check if it’s possible to revive a bonsai tree. If you’re not able to, it’s a lesson that you should move on to something else, literally and figuratively. A new bonsai could help you move onto a new life, leaving negativity behind.
Why reviving a bonsai tree is so important
Saving a bonsai tree isn’t only about giving it a chance at new life. Neglect is often a sign that you need to pay more attention to yourself, as you’re not making spare time for the tree. When you show care for something else, you’re actually caring for your own well-being, be it mentally, spiritually, or emotionally.
If you notice someone else has one that’s dying, you can ask the owner if you can take it over by reviving the bonsai tree. It’s best not to return it to them unless they show that they’re willing to provide better care. If the tree is too far gone, it may be a sign to move to a different species or something new.
Can you revive a bonsai tree?
It’s possible to revive a bonsai tree if it hasn’t gone too far. There’s a cambium layer under the bark that should be green. If it is, there’s still hope that you can save it. If it’s a different color, such as grey or dark brown, there’s a low chance you’ll be able to bring it back to full health. Sometimes, the roots are still strong enough to get them to thrive again.

You can also check to see if the cambium layer has a greener color within a few months.
Do you need to move on?
Not all bonsai trees can be revived. It’s the same as toxic or broken relationships. Sometimes, you just can’t save it, and you need to find a healthy way to move on. It’s the same here. If you see that there’s no chance for it to come back to life, it will be best to buy a new bonsai tree of the same or different species. Failure is simply a stepping stone to future success.
