Default Re: dried plants

Hopefully someone with more experience will weigh in on this but , a couple of things. Is it possible that it got below freezing ( a high /low thermometer may help). I've read that wrapping a damp towel around the roots may help this , wetting the towel occasionally say once a month. I've over wintered plumeria for well over 10 years( dry in pots) watering about once a month only because the stem ends tend to get shriveled. Still upon resuming regular watering they do just fine.Hope this helps.
