PLANT PROTECTION NEEDS
Any indoor plant that you have planted outside (anthuriums, philodendrums, rubber plants), most ferns, and anything considered a “Tropical” should be protected. It may be difficult to cover Bromeliads in your landscape — they should be okay.
With any of these plants expect some leaf damage, and be scouting for disease after the cold.
