Hi, back in October, me and my friend went to the park and picked up a couple of acorns. We put them in the fridge for a month in a plastic bag with wet cloth. We where able to sprout the acorns. I had mine for a week and I needed to bring it home for a few weeks in between university clinicals and I had to leave it in the car for a few hours. It died since it was winter and froze. However, about a month later a new sprout started growing and I was able to save it. It has now grown leaves for a few months now but its growth has stunted. I can see a little bud coming at the top but its been there for 2 months. Now some of the leaves have wilted and it hasn't grown. I was wondering if any of you guys have tips on how I could save it and kick start its growth again since i'd like to plant it in the yard next summer and have an oak tree .

Here is how it looks right now (kinda looks like a dying bonzai) and how it looked 1 and half months ago. I will also include how my friends oak looks like (its the one with 2 rows of leaves)

Trees grown in pots, in garden soil are drowning in too much water due to too small particle size of the soil it is in.

Also this is an out of doors only tree.
