|Thanks for taking my questions.
Yes, I've been trying my hands on gardening, but I keep on killing my plants. Either by watering them too much or keeping them outside to get fresh air (cold Canadian currents).
Few weeks back I moved this plant outside to get some air but temperature plummeted at night and after few days all its leaves melted. I quickly moved it inside and then removed all the leaves as all of them were melted or dried. Then I tried slightly cutting the plant here and there so that leaves can grow from those places. But off late I see the plant is shrinking and the soil has remained moist for almost a week.
Can this plant be saved?

|If these were mine, I would cut all the stems back to 3". Leave in pot. Water normally and keep plant in medium bright light. They will sprout new vegetative leads.
All of the cut off stems can be rooted in water. Some will root quickly while others will take longer. Once they have a dynamite new root system, you can repot them.

|Good luck! There is hope. Lesson learned, putting a houseplant outside for a day here and there does no real good and can do a lot of harm. They can freeze, sunburn, or dry suddenly in wind.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
