Hello,

It’s gonna get cold this week during the day (low 60’s) and I was wondering if it would be fine to move them inside for that period of time. After this week it’s supposed to be in the high 70’s low 80’s.
Just wondering if I can bring em in because I know most plants don’t like changing spots a lot.

Thanks

I move mine indoors when the temperature is forecast to drop below 50°F at night, then put them back out in the morning. If it drops below 40°F I just bring them in until it stays above 50°F at night again.
Inside, I hang them in front of my east facing window, so they still get decent light.
You're good, move 'em.

I agree bring them in over risking it. Last year i made that mistake, my Boschiana's leaves all died. it has recovered but it was a large set back.
