    Hi all,
    Not having luck with Kenya trees so I'm obviously doing something wrong as they ment to be hardy. My 3rd tree is now shrivelled up and loosing branch's. The trunk is shrivelled too so my question is could it come back from this considering the trunk is shrivelled and it's dropping branch's or should I throw it away now before it rots and possibly causes problems in my tank?

    Pls dont ask about water parameter etc (don't mean that in a rude way, I will do more research to why I'm killing them in the first place before I start bugging you all with questions :)) as I just want to know if it's to far gone.

    Thanks as always.
