Q.Corn Plant Was Hit by Frost, How Do I Save It?

Zone 5 | vgibson added on May 16, 2013 | Answered

All the leaves have turned brown and shriveled except there is new growth at the very top center of the plant. Should I cut it back?

Trimming the damaged leaves is an option, pruning is another. If it was just frost and not temps in 20-25 degree range for more than an hour, the plant probably will not perish.
