@heatherdirtyhands I'm in zone 8, it's an unheated insulated garage, I let them die back and do nothing all winter, I start watering the end of February, sorry it didn't work for you! Try again you never know!💘😍

@cyndi I know and I think you should be a higher zone and I should be a lower zone, with our crazy winters! I try to find plants anymore that are zone 7 or lower just to be safe 🤷💘😍

This will be a house plant? It's great colors. It's so nice you can do what you enjoy.

comment
ShelleySnyder

@columbiariver I'm not going to bring it in the house cuz I don't have room (all my snake plants take up all the room) . But I'm still undecided if I should put them in the garage (running out of room there too!), the tag say zone 7b, so in all reality I should be able to leave them outside---we'll see!

I really like it. And that's incredible! I hadn't even considered it could be an outside plant for you. I learn so much here.

@columbiariver there is no plant that can't be outside for anyone, it's just a matter of zone and what are you willing to do to save it thru winter💘😍

columbiariver

Yes. But riddle me this: if I'm bringing it inside for winter is it an inside or an outside plant? Bwahahaha!

@columbiariver 😂😂😂😂 I'd call it a combo plant!😂😂😂

Me too. I've got a couple now. A gardenia, an abutilon and some others that I don't want to die off. It's going to be a jungle in here!

I spent a bunch of money Saturday at a new (to me) garden center. I went with @petersburghomesteader and kept telling her I need to stop, but she was no help! I need pots and potting soil, and I come home with like 6 new plants!
