Q.Wintering Iochroma Cyaneum

Zone Zone 5 | Anonymous added on August 8, 2021 | Answered

I keep this plant in my small sunroom late Fall until May. Zone 5. Flowering this year for the first time! When I bring it in for the winter, I would like to prune it to a more manageable size. Would this decrease flowering next year? Also, not sure when it may need a larger pot? Thank you!
