I have a persian shield doing quite well in a pot with 2 dusty millers on the sides also doing quite well. Since I've read the persian shield can do well indoors in winter, should I just cut the dusty miller's down to the dirt or empty and eliminate the dusty miller's on the sides and then repot filling in the blank spots with add'l potting soil?

RE: repotting persian shield for indoors

Hi Liz , I tried to bring my persian shield inside last year.All the leaves fell off despite TLC.At the same time I took clippings which rooted nicely in a glass of water-then put in a baggie.I grew this on and kept it inside.Hope that helps!! Vic
