Planting Arboricola Outdoors

Anonymous added on September 13, 2015 | Answered

I have an arboricola plant that is extremely large. I put it outdoors in the spring and bring it indoors for the winter. It is now becoming too large to move and I thought about planting it outdoors. Is this possible for it to survive? I live in western Pennsylvania near Indiana.

They cannot survive outdoors year round in your region, as they do not tolerate temps below 50 degrees F. You can, however, prune it back to keep its height under control. Just cut off what you feel is overgrown back to a size or shape you like, and one that is more manageable. These houseplants rebound quickly from pruning and will look even fuller and more lush shortly after pruning.
