Gloxinia
« on: December 28, 2017, 15:57 »
One of my favourite house plants is Gloxinia, I like the way they die down and come back and are tolerant of all light levels - important in my house, with light being only very strong or very weak. Anyway 2 of them have died back so they got put outside the house by someone because they looked untidy,  They  spent 3.5 days outside - yesterday in heavy rain.  Can they survive?  Should I dig up the bulbs and put them to dry?

I would dig them up, just to check the bulbs are going to hold.  The rain shouldn't have done too much harm, but the frosts may have.

Fingers crossed the bulbs don't rot and you see shoots budding on the top. They are a very easy going houseplant and pretty to boot.  It would be a shame to lose them.
