overwintering citronella plant

cnid(z5b Ont Canada)November 22, 2008

Have 2 citronella plants in pots. I was told I can overwinter indoors. They are in a bright room with direct sun. The room is on the cool side. What do people do with these to ensure survival? Cut back? water sparingly?

Thanks for any help.

I toss mine in the basement and leave it with the brugs. In the spring, I set it out after the last frost. I'm about 50/50 on saving them. I can't get them to live upstairs even with window light. There are too many trees that I get only dappled sunlight.
