    Try water and a little natural light.

    you need the proper conditions...temp min of 60 degrees F, 8 to 10 hours of sunlight or under a fake sun...called grow bulbs for your light fixtures. When you bring them in, you may need to prune them back a bit...I don’t know what plants you have...so google them-does a X need to be pruned when brought in for winter ? Also check the pots for Klingons like ants, beetles. Don’t for get about watering...too much will drown the roots, too little they will wilt.

    Lots of light (can be indirect) and careful monitoring water content of soil to avoid both too much and too little water. Our house gets very dry in cold weather and find I have more need for water for the house plants in winter than in summer.

    Yes. I don't use grow lights but they are great if you have them and the room for them.

    Hi Carmenbessie,
    It depends on whether your plants are meant to be house plants or plants that you bring inside over the winter. Since you said house plants, I'm going to assume that you mean plants that usually live indoors. Here's an article I found that lists 5 reasons why house plants die and what you can do about it. Good luck!

    Biggest thing is not to overwater them, particularly in cold weather. I keep forgetting to water mine, and it seems to be the best thing for them! I water at most once a fortnight, often even less than that, but, of course, it depends what type of plants.
