Someone else mentioned how inspirational a plant can be and it's very true, watching it grow back, survive, have new growth, its different and changed forever, but it goes on. I scrubbed this with a toothbrush where I could, misted it twice a day, changed pots and soil, toothpick and cotton swabs. Hard as lots of places had the needles still so worked around them. Can see new growth seems so much greener now and the smoke smell is gone. Doesn't quite hold up as well, but last few months it's been sprouting new growth like crazy.
