The Q&A Archives: House Plants Outdoors

Question: I have a very large ficus (fig)tree and pineapple palm tree. For the past 3 years, I have kept them outdoors in summer and indoors in winter. They have grown too large and too tall for me to keep indoors. Can it survive outdoors in Atlanta winters?

Answer: I'm afraid both trees will be damaged in freezing temperatures so you may want to try to find another home for them. They just won't survive outdoors in Atlanta. Wish I had better news for you!
