Yes you should cover it. You can choose to monitor the weather and frost warnings and cover the plant with a sheet when an overnight frost is predicted. When temperatures warm up in a day or two, remove the covering to allow air and light circulation. Last average frost date for your location in Bryan, Texas is mid to end of March.
