Potted eucalyptus

Zone Burlington, Kansas 66839 | Anonymous added on January 8, 2017 | Answered

I brought my plant indoors this fall and placed it in my east bay window so it gets a lot of sunlight. I water it accordingly. The leaves have now turned a dull green color and are dry and brittle; however, the branches are still pliable. Do I need to cut it back and how much or is it dead??

    The sunlight indoors are likely not enough for the full sun plant. Adding a grow light will help the plant through the darker winter days.
    You can cut back the plant and allow it to go dormant in a cool and dry location--basement would be fine.
