Saving Episcia after Sandy
My house was out of power and heat for almost two weeks after Sandy hit, and while my other tropicals and Gesneriads weathered the cold temps and darkness OK, my poor Episcias were hit hard. I have four of them and they lost most or all of their leaves. The stems are still firm and I think the heat came back before they were fatally chilled, but I'm trying to figure out if they will recover.
If I cut them back and remove all the wilted leaves, will they regrow? How hard can they be cut back and still grow? Or is it too late for them and should I just find replacements?
