Gardening in Gwinnett: Houseplants require special care during the cold months

Indoor plants are widely used in homes and commercial buildings. They help keep us in touch with nature and, in a sense, "bring the outside indoors." With the cold weather months upon us now, houseplants that have been outside should have already been brought inside since most houseplants are tropical plants, and most are unable to tolerate temperatures below 40 degrees. The goal in overwintering is not to necessarily grow fancy beautiful houseplants during this time of the year but to maintain the overall health and vigor of the plants.
