Host Richard Hentschel talks about taking care of houseplants that were outside for the summer. Spider mites can be a real problem if they get established on your plants indoors for the winter. Other insects really do not survive inside and are often found dead around the houseplants. Some insects live inside the pot and are not harmful to the plant itself as they feed on decaying organic matter.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
