Hello, I have some canna that I started from seed this year and so far they are growing nicely!! Never tried to grow canna from seed until now and don't know what to do with them now! Can I bring them in the house and keep them alive through the winter???? They are about 4-5 inces tall right now. Any information anyone has will be greatly appreciated!! THANK YOU
Your canna should be fine inside for the winter. You should let them get almost dry or even dry between waterings, they will get root rot if you keep them too wet.
They may brown out some (not sure if that's caused by the dry winter air or the cold) but don't let that worry you too much. Mine get some brown leaves outside in winter and at the same time they are bringing up new growth! Underground the roots will be getting stronger for next year.
Thank you everyone for your responses!! I have brought them inside and hopefully will be able to keep them going till next year!! Some do have brown on the edges of the leaves but basically look healthy. We shall see what happens!! Thanks again.
