Houseplants in distress – low moisture and frigid temps

Zone Standing Rock, NM | Phoebe added on December 29, 2015 | Answered

My houseplants are droopy. They had been in a home without heat in frigid temperatures. I transported them to my home, exposing them to even more cold weather. What do I need to do? Prior to their transport, they had not watered for at least 2 weeks.

I would continue to care for the plants with light watering and proper light conditions for the plants.

You can prune away any dead or dying leaves and then wait and see.

Many houseplants will suffer cold damage in temperatures below 50 degrees but some may be able to tolerate colder temperatures.

Best of luck.
