My DR's have no leaves. One still has blooms but the other is a bunch of sticks. The baby is doing fine. They are sitting safe from the outdoor freeze on a sunny window sill. Do I water them??

You will get different answers on this.Here's mine.While dormant I water just enough to keep the roots from drying out.For a 10 inch clay pot that will be about a cupful a week but the heat in my gh drys them quickly.
I guess my guide line would be,don't let them stay damp for very long.

I'll second that, although I've had plants 'hanging' for as long as five months. Meaning zero water. They sure can be dry, and they sure cannot be very wet.
