Can I Save an Indoor Plant That Got Frozen Outside


kmiller6711 added on November 22, 2014 | Answered

I had a peace plant outside when an unexpected freeze hit the area. I would guess the plant was in the cold about 6 - 8 hours. The leaves are shriveled badly but the core of the plant does not look dead. What should I do to try to save it?

Cut off the shriveled and damaged leaves, set it in a bright spot (out to the cold, obviously) and test the soil for moisture level near the bottom of the pot, making sure the soil does not stay too wet - it should be maintained at a 'slightly damp' stage. If the roots are viable, they will send up new leaves. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/testing-moisture-in-plants.htm
