Cold temperature cause of wilting Brugmansias?
    #4268780 - 06/07/05 06:43 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

It's winter here now and the last few days have been around freezing level. I've been keeping my brugs in a greenhouse, and they seemed to be happy enough. When I checked on them last night however, they were all severely wilted.

At first I thought it might have been the shock of the first fertilizer in months I'd used on them when watering them a couple of days ago, but then a small portion of a lemon tree in the same greenhouse shows the same wilting.

So, is the cold most likely to have caused this? And if so, would keeping them indoors over winter make them all nice and turgid again?
Any help much appreciated :smile:



Incidentally, given the particularly toxic nature of these plants, would it be unsafe to have a large number of them in my living space? Already they seem to be exuding something...

Over the past five hours they've deteriorated a lot. Even if all the leaves fall off now will they re-sprout in spring?

They look quite comical now in a sad sort of way.

I just realized it was overwatering

Well, Brugmansias hate the cold, so that might have been why.
