This was left outside on the deck all day 45 degrees and 20 mile an hour winds. Will it bounce back? Anything I should do?

Was it well hydrated before it suffered the weather trauma, Reid?

When we expect cold nights here, to protect our tender divas we always water well. So far most of the leaves don't look dessicated or burnt so that's a good sign.

Maybe keep it indoors but on the floor (a little cooler) for tonight then water it well and mist the leaves tomorrow and keep it out of the sun for a day. I think it should recover just fine.

Thanks! Yeah, it got rained on for awhile, so it was hydrated. It suffered mostly of the damage when it was outside during the day.
