Swiss Cheese Plants
Q.

damaged cheese plant

thomasleep added on March 31, 2012 | Answered

I had what was a healthy cheese plant indoors and during the hot weather this week I put it outside for some sunlight but left it out at night. Now the leaves have gone brown and withered. What can I do to it, chop of the dead leaves, cut it right back?

The plant is simply stressed. You can try cutting out all the brown/dying foliage but leave the green. Make sure that it has plenty of water, as it probably dried out if it was hot, and keep it in a sheltered location (out of direct sunlight/light). It will hopefully bounce back in a few weeks if not sooner.
