It’s time to start bringing in houseplants and tender bulbs before we get really cold, or worse, we have a frost or freeze. Before actually bringing your houseplants in for the winter you need to do a little work to ward off problems down the road.
The plant and pot should be washed with a good spray of water from the hose and allowed to dry completely. Next, you should spray the entire plant and pot with an insecticidal soap. Make sure you spray the undersides of the leaves. This is where most plant pests are located.
