i have just moved from louisiana to ohio. my plants were doing great in the warm humid L.A. i moved my plants in my explorer, i did not realize that over night they would not like the cold temps the car had.. The 3 plants that did not fare well were 2 african violets, 2 large shiffaleras, and 2 large peace lillys. Is there any hope for the violets? what sould i do about the shifff and peace lillys? they have lost almost all of therir leaves, should i cut and how much? [tears]

Hi janvier,
I'm sorry to hear about your plants, however, all is not lost. I don't think I can help you with the AV's, although if you can salvage a leaf cutting from them, they can be easily propagated. As for the Scheffs and the Peace Lilies, I would just cut back what has frozen. Do not repot, or fertilize, but place in the appropriate lighting, water as needed, and hope for the best. I'm sorry, I know this probably isn't too helpful, but hopefully someone else will come along with more info. Good luck with your plants!

actually amy, you did well. my only comment would be to state regarding the cutting back of the peace lily, i would carefully inspect it, as you might have part of the center than isn't really frozen, as much as shocked. don't cut that part back.
