Q.frozen plants

Zone Indiana | Meagan added on January 8, 2015 | Answered

My two house plants were accidentally left in the house when we were moving, and are both very limp, but still green. One is a philodendron, and the other is aloe hedgehog. I’m hoping to be able to save them?

Depending on how low the temperature went, and for how long, they may have suffered only leaf damage. If the roots weren't frozen, they'll be okay. Give them a few days to make sure the leaves that aren't damaged too badly can stand up, then cut off the damaged leaves and proceed as normal. If they can grow, they will. Just make sure the soil isn't staying too wet, as the plants won't have as many leaves as they had before to transpire water.
