I live in SC and kept my begoina plants indoors during the winter; they were beautiful. I put them outside a few days ago, as the weather was warm. The next day all the leaves had turned white and almost translucent. Will they come back? What do I need to do to preserve them? Thank you for your help.

If you did not acclimate it before moving it outside, it may be suffering a bit from shock. This is ok and it should recover. Lots of times this is a huge factor that contributes to the failing health of plants. They get stressed and as a result, fail to thrive.
