Oak, is it alive?

16 years ago

I've gathered oak from the forest two weeks ago. There was a lot of dormant buds on it and i managed to keep fine rootball with small amount of root injuries. I've potted it and left on balcony to give it some time for accommodation and then moved it onto window-sill that is well lit.

Two weeks have passed but it doesn't show any signs of living, buds remain still. However, when i cut some bark it seems to be wet and green.

According to this article

my oak's perspectives are bad as i gathered it during winter. But is there any way i can check if it's alive, or how long should i wait for it to break buds? Can anyone help?
