Answer: Euryops is a native of South Africa and should be wintered over indoors in cold climates. Taking your plant inside is a good first step. The drying leaves are probably a natural reaction to the change in temperature and humidity your plant is experiencing. As it adjusts to these changes, it will likely lose some leaves. You can prune it back to remove the browning leaves. First, remove the cocoon - you don't want pests invading your home. The second concern is the fluid oozing from the stems. This could indicate additional pests, or simply wounds where sucking insects have been feeding. Again, pruning these plant parts away should rid your plant of pests. As for all houseplants, bright light, average household temperatures, occasional misting with plain water, and keeping the soil moist but not soggy wet should help your Euryops get through the winter season. When you take it back outdoors next spring it should overcome the stress of being indoors and flourish. Best wishes with your Euryops!
