Pruning Angel Trumpets being wintered in a greenhouse

Even though I’m in Texas, Zone 8a, I’ve moved all my outdoor plants into our greenhouse that we just put together. Since doing this about a month ago, my Angel Trumpets have just gone crazy with blooms. Since I’ll be keeping them in the greenhouse until probably the first signs of spring, do I need to prune them? I have them in very large pots.

Why would you want to prune them and lose those gorgeous blooms? You can do some pruning when the flowering slows, but with a light hand, and you should be able to keep it flowering right along. This article has more information: [1]

I most definitely don’t want to prune them because they are so beautiful. I’ve still got about 30 or so blooms yet to open. This is our first year with a greenhouse so I wanted to make sure that even though they are in the greenhouse that they didn’t need to be pruned. I would imagine then that the same will hold true for my Hibiscus and Bougainvilleas that are in there.
