I have several that I pot up and store in garage ( z5-6 ). My first year I tried and it filled with (aphids ?) may have been Smites .... as I knew NOTHING about burgs. Next year I pulled all the leaves off but afraid to keep in house.....LAST NIGHT I was ( delirious ?) and brought in a 7' er.....climbed a ladder...... to stick it in a vaulted ceiling area. ( Not totally smart for a (61 YOld). I doused it with alcohol in a sprayer ......I know this is no guarantee....I just needed to confess and get prayers said !

Anyone else obsessed w/ overwintering stuff that maybe should NOT be tried ?
What have you guys tried and were surprised ?

I bring all of my brugs in, I am in zone 5. If you have room, he best thing to do is strip offall the leaves and put them in a dark cool spot to sleep. No bugs to deal with. Water hem about once a month depending on the temperature you keep the house. The warmer, the more you need to water.

Strip the leaves, spray with Bayer 3-n-1 let dry over-night before bringing them in the house. This will elminate bugs. Good Luck,

I've brought them in to the house for winter, they bloom lightly all winter if given enough light. Depending on your humidity, I didn't get any bugs on mine!
