Time to bring Houseplants inside from the Outdoors






While your houseplants truly delight in getting a summer vacation outdoors, when the nighttime temperatures are dipping into the 40's it's time to bring them inside until next mid-spring. Most plants can tolerate temperatures down to freezing, but it's best to bring them in earlier so that the transition to inside temperatures is smoother. I've also found that flushing the soil with a very generous amount of water helps to prevent bringing in soil bugs. Be sure to place in them in the right light for your particular plant when returning them to indoors.

    1. You can try several drops of Tabasco or Crystal hot sauce in a pint sprayer of water. Shouldn't hurt the plants or the kitty.
