Transition your houseplants to move back indoors for the winter. Hosing off the plant with a gentle spray of water can help clean the leaves and activate insects making them easier to see. Make the move less traumatic by bringing plants in at night and putting them back out during the mild days. In a week they’ll be ready to spend the winter in the warmth of your home.
