I have a little gelsemium sempervirens in a pot, which I bring indoors in very cold weather - lower than -2C. It hasn't flowered this year. Am I keeping it too warm?



Hi Dawnchorus and welcome to Goy. This is not a plant I know but all the things I have read on Google indicate it can take temperatures much lower than -2˚C

Thanks Moongrower! And thanks for the nice welcome!
I thought the plant would go as low as -8, so I'm glad you agree it wasn't the frost killed it, as I took it indoors at -2. Maybe I should have put it outside more. I'll feed it and leave it out from now on, and see what happens. Thanks for your kind advice! :)
