    no idea whatsoever on where to post this.

    basically i have a bet on with someone as to whether or not this plant is savable. i know it looks very very dead i was just wondering other than making sure it gets lots of sunlight and water (which is what this plant aparantly needs) should i do anything else?

    will removing the fruit help at all? or is that going to make it worse

    Is it a pepper plant? It looks like one. If it is, capsicum plants are perennials so they are losing their foliage at this time of year to conserve energy due to low UV light levels.

    My advise is to take off the fruits and leaves; you may also wish to lightly prune the branches and give it a drop of water.

    I believe the fruits of this plant are poisonous so bin them.
