Winter Over Angel Trumpet Plant in the House

Anonymous added on October 26, 2011 | Answered

I have a very large 5 ft. angel trumpet plant that I want to winter over in my house. I live in Washington state and it gets too cold for it to stay outside. I have two 65 watt plant lights on it 6 to 8 hrs a day, but the leaves are turning yellow and falling off. It is blooming beautifully right now, but the leaves are dying. Please tell my how I can save this beautiful plant.
