Where to Grow Japanese Lanterns

I was given Japanese Lanterns from a friend. I know very little about these plants and have been told they are very aggressive. Should I plant them in my garden or maybe put them in containers?

Chinese Lantern Disappeared

My Chinese lantern plants have not come back this year. I planted 4 quite small plants last year. They all flowered well but when they died down nothing has come back.

Indoor Japanese Lanterns

How do I take care of the 2 plants I just received for my birthday? I plan on keeping them indoors until I can plant them outside in the spring. The leaves are looking quite limp and the lanterns are deflating.

Typically these plants don't perform well indoors. Depending on your USDA zone, you might consider planting them outside now. You could also save some seed to plant next spring.

Chinese Lantern

All of the pods have faded and fallen off. I read if they receive too much indirect sun that will cause the fade. There are lots of little pods but they are not doing anything. Once a week I set it in a sink of water and it really perks up.

Try watering your plant more often, twice or even three times a week. Don't let it get so dry it wilts. This article has some more tips: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/chinese-lantern/caring-for-chinese-lanterns.htm

Stop Cucumber Beetles

How do I stop cucumber beetles coming back next year? Can I spray the ground with something in the fall or spring? I live in Ohio and every year the cucumber beetles come back and eat my Japanese lanterns. They don’t eat anything else in the garden. I only have a flower garden, no vegetables. How do I get rid of them for good?

Chinese Lantern Over Winter

Will my Chinese lantern survive our winter, zone 3 outside in its pot? Is it better to bring the plant indoors during our extremely cold, snowy winters – 20 to 30 degree Celsius below zero?

Your plants should be fine overwintering in pots. You can move to a sheltered location and even a garage for winter will be fine.
You can add a bit of protection around the pot if you like. A bag of leafs is an easy way to do this.
My wintered over pots I add a bit of moisture once a month, Just enough to keep the soil from drying completely and cracking.
