Bringing Back Poinsettia Plants
I left a good one on the porch overnight by mistake. . . probably 38-40 degrees outside. The leaves have a wilted look. I brought it inside. . . will it come back?

Poinsettia are very cold tender (which is kind of funny when you consider it is a "Christmas" plant). The leaves will die when they are exposed to cold and they can't be revived. It may regrow those leaves, but that will take many months. If you are looking for a pretty poinsettia for the holidays, you will need to go buy a new one.
