Q.When To Plant Starter Plant Outside?

Zone 77957 | Anonymous added on October 24, 2023 | Answered

I have several small starter plants; Candlestick plants. I live in S. E. Texas (77957.) I don’t even know what zone I’m in now. Do I get them inside over this winter, and plant in the spring? We usually have a night or 2 of freeze.

You are in hardiness zone 9 and the candlestick plant is hardy in zones 9 to 11. Since it's late in the year and the plants are small, I would keep them inside over the winter near a south window. Then plant them outside this spring.

Alternatively, you can plant them outside now, and cover them during the coldest snaps.
