My Raspberry Ice Is Inside and Dropping Leaves

lorenzen added on September 10, 2014 | Answered

My bougainvillea raspberry ice plant that I just transplanted and moved inside, because it is getting cold at night, is now dropping leaves. It has new ones growing. It's standing in front of a window. I don't know what to do. Is it normal for it to do that?
