I was transporting my African violets like I have done several times without incident (we are snowbirds). However, when I got them back to Indiana I found they were cold and damp and the leaves looked like plants look after a frost. I had drained their pots and tied them loosely in a plastic bag and put them in the back glass of the car. When home I put them in a window, so they have dried out a lot but will probably lose all of their leaves. Are they likely to put out new runners, or dead? I have had violets for years and even propagated them, so this was a big disappointment. Thanks, Lisa

You will need to wait and see. If they were frozen and the roots were frozen; they will freeze more easily if the soil was dry, they will not recover.
