Hotel bonsai

Upon close, and I do mean close because I'm locked out of the room, inspection, this hotel decoration appears to be a real plant.

At first blush, you'd call it a bonsai, and it might be, but I suspect it is not a bonsai in the usual sense where some kindly old man has loved it for decades.

More likely, this one was a shrubbery that was tortuously cut back, roots trimmed to to fit in the decorative pot, and allowed to sprout a very little.

It appears to like low lighting, but I question how long it'll be before yielding to the non-lighting in this hallway.

One tiny leaf has already browner and withered.
