Answer: Bonsai growth
It is not always possible to recover a plant subjected to strong water stress, much depends on the length of the period in which your plant remained completely dry, and of course also on the species of plant. If your plant has been thirsty for several days and has completely lost its foliage, then it is very likely that it is already dead. If, on the other hand, by pruning the branches, you notice that they are still green and vital inside, it may be that you are able to recover it. Now surely it is good to resume the correct watering, moistening the soil and repeating the operation when it has dried. The best method in these cases is watering by immersion, immersing the whole pot in the water, and removing it only when the earthen bread has completely rehydrated (about half an hour should suffice). In the nursery you can find suitable fertilizers in these cases, but avoid supplying them more than once, do not exceed with the doses. It certainly continues with regular watering, but avoid drowning the plant by watering it too often.
