My fiance proposed with a ring and a baby oak tree, and we're planning on using it in our wedding ceremony one year from now. Unfortunately it's half dead. Of course we can buy a new one, but I'm sentimental and would much prefer the original. You can see a picture here: http://i.imgur.com/tQYCr.jpg As you can see, it's alive on the outside perimeter and kinda.... well, crunchy and brown in the middle. Oddly enough, there are new green shoots on the perimeter that look quite healthy. We've been keeping it in the pot with a bowl to catch the water, so it kinda sits in water most times. We water it once a week or so, whenever it seems dry, but it sits in water which is probably half the problem. Any advice from botanists/gardeners/tree enthusiasts would be GREATLY appreciated!! FWIW, we live in a temperate climate (San Jose, CA, USA). And, we keep it inside in indirect sunlight.
