What's wrong with my plant?

Hi all!

I just got this plant 3 weeks ago, it used to be all green but it started browning at the top almost immediately after I got it. I don't know what it's called. Please help!

Many thanks!

    It's looks like some form of conifer - a tree which grows outdoors, not a houseplant.    Probably too warm and dry.

    I planted a couple of these in winter window boxes one year then transferred them to the garden.  They grew to about 3m high in just a couple of years and I was wondering how to tackle them when a -25C frost killed them.   Sorted.

    Agree with Obelixx - however you bought that plant, it isn't one for indoors.  Unless you have a garden and want a conifer in it, I'd forget it .  Bit harsh but that is how we all learnimage

    Cupressus macrocarpa 'Goldcrest' ; an exceptionally vigorous outdoor conifer ; then again I can't think of many 'indoor' conifers image
