It's that time of year again...
Time to move the (tropical) garden plants inside, because of autumn frosts. The end of the outside season does not have to mean a parting with our plants, however. We moved our favorite tropicals inside, where they'll survive as houseplants until spring. (i hope...)
Most of the plants will hibernate in the attic, but this huge one is getting too heavy to take it upstairs.
We have a large table by the window in the attic for the plants. They need a bright spot, as most of our plants grow in full sun outdoors.
They also like extra humidity, for indoor air is typically dry and the leaves will turn brown and crispy if there's not enough moisture in it. I know this from experience, so let's hope this hibernation will succeed.
