overwintering peppers

Hi Pepper experts,

I have a fresno pepper that I overwintered in a greenhouse. Temperatures in the GH got pretty cold over the winter but now we have lows of 50 and highs of 80 in the GH. The plant lost all its leaves but there are still buds that look alive. Pictures below. Is it really alive? How can I get it to start growing again?

Still looks alive....
Provide warmth, light, water, and nutrients.
You'll know shortly.

Leave it alone, you don't have to do anything.

Chiles are extremely hardy.
