They are very picky about the amount of light and water they get. If
the leaves (needle -like) are turning yellow (not brown) and falling
off, then it's not getting enough light. (or temp too high) If the
leaves are yellow and scorched at the edges, too much light or was
allowed to dry out. I had both of these problems. I put it in a east
window and it looks great and even flowered.
	Water thoroughly, but allow to dry out a little between
	If the roots are hollow, I'd say it's bugs or you watered it
too much (root rot). More likely the latter.
