Answer: Before the first frost in the fall, tender and tropical plants should be removed from the pond and brought indoors for winter storage. On most plants the foliage should be cut back to prevent bringing any unwanted pests into the house. Some pond plants can be treated as houseplants while others need to be kept in a cool, dry area. To treat as a houseplant, set the plant in a dish of water and locate it near a brightly lit window. If not enough light is available, a growlight is recommended. Water cannas can be grown as houseplants, or you can store the tubers over the winter months in a cool, dry location, and repot them in the spring to place back in your in your pond.
