Hi All, Thank You for taking out the time to help us with this.

We got this tiny little tree last year and repotted in Spring. We place it in our balcony in the middle of spring and in a few weeks this is what happened (please see pictures)

I did find white spider mites on the tree and sprayed it with soap, all of the mites are gone but the question is will this little tree come back to life.

NO it doesn't look good at the moment. The soil doesn't match the plant and there's no reason to keep trying. The attack of spider mites are an indication of a super stressed plant. Your plant didn't like the transplant into the new soil and so it's a goner.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
