How to care for cold damaged houseplants…

Hi Judy I accidentally left my plant out side in very cold weather last night and now it is droopy and almost see through. How can I bring it back to life?

Hi Peggy,

You need to cut off all of the cold damaged stems at the soil line. Put the plant in a warm bright area and be careful not to over water. Hopefully the roots survived the ordeal and will send out new growth. Try using a product called SuperThrive that you can read about in the Glossary of the website. It will help stimulate new growth.
