I need some help with my two poinsettias.
I have had one of them for about 10 years (it had a hard time with some rotting root stuff way back when it was 2 or 3 and has never really been super robust..but its big) and the other started out as a brocken off branch of the 1st one and has been on its own for around 7-8 years I think. this past summer the big one looked like it was on its way out many times but kept pulling through and we had it out on the front porch for the past few months it looked like it was starting to get a little steadier but never got as dark as the little one (the little one had almost black green leaves) they were out there until right before we had a cold snap about a week ago,I didn't want them to get temperature shock so I left them in a coolish zone for most of a day and then moved them to a sort of moderate place later that night. 2 days after I brought them inside they both started to wither and drop there leaves...the little one whole branches are shriveling up and the stems getting rubbery!!!
it is now frozen outside so I cant put them back out....
