Q.If A Devil’s Backbone Plant Is Exposed To Freezing Temperatures For One Day Will It Survive?

It was only left out over night. I immediately brought the plant back into the house after the drastic temperature drop it endured. How do I save this plant?

You'll need to watch the plant to see how much damage it may have sustained. Trim away damaged leaves and stems as they show signs, until you get down to a healthy part of the plant. There's no way to tell immediately, so let the plant tell you what needs to be trimmed back.
