The Q&A Archives: Wintering A Fuschia

Question: What is the best way to "winterize" a fuschia once you have
brought it indoors so that it blooms healthy again next
year? Should I cut it back? Let it dry out
over the winter months or keep it watered? Re-pot in the
fall or spring? Fertilize?

Answer: Bring the fuschia inside before temperatures drop. Continue to provide bright light, water regularly, and fertilize lightly once a month. Before bringing it inside, check carefully for insects, especially whiteflies. You can repot in the spring just before new growth starts. Since the plant will be "resting" during winter, there's no point in repotting in fall. I hope this info helps!
