I messed up and overwatered the heck out of my dwarf mugo pine. I'm now trying to aerate the soil as much as possible by turning it over and w/ a fan. My question is, is it dead already or is there any chance of bringing it back? The pot has drainage. I think I read somewhere you won't know until you see how the new buds do, any truth to this? Thanks!

I reckon it`s had it Andrew :( and you might be better off starting again. We all lose a plant sometimes, we just have to persevere.

Yep, I do think you are correct. But, on the bright side of things, this is a learning experience. In my lifetime I have killed hundreds if not thousands of plants because of lack of knowledge, hard headiness or just plain old stupidity. Live and Learn. But, if he wants to experiment and try to save the plant here is what I would do. I would take the plant out of the container and wash away all of the soil. I would then spray the roots with hydrogen peroxide and then repot with a fresh growing medium. I would then water with SuperThrive and keep the plant damp. SuperThrive can do amazing things.
