October Gardening: Moving Houseplants Back Indoors
As the temperatures
fall, it is time to call your houseplants back inside for the winter months.
You can help your houseplants slowly readjust to indoor conditions by bringing

your plants a week of this routine to prepare them for the environmental

- Remove damaged leaves and spent flowers.
- Inspect every leaf and pot for spiders, ants, ladybugs, pill bugs,
and centipedes. Use an old rag to wipe each leave and ensure you
remove eggs and all the tiny ones.
- Houseplants that are active in the wintertime can be submerged in
a large bucket. The water bath will get rid of many bugs, cleans the
pot and waters the plant. Hose your extra large plants in the shower.
- Dormant or semi-dormant should not be watered or soaked before the
move indoors for they are accustomed to a dry period of a few months.
