How to Winterize Your Plant Collection
First things first – there is no reason why a houseplant that thrived in your home during the spring and summer can’t survive the winter. Most plants won’t grow very much in the winter, and some will go completely dormant and won’t grow at all. Houseplants are also increasingly susceptible to root rot, pests, and other issues during the winter transition. You definitely want to take some precautions to help them out a little bit.
