Default Dwarf Namwah pup happily recovered(and question)

It had been sickly after shipping a few months ago,(black kept eating through the stem and killing leaves!) The persistant black had kept it in a holding pattern of only a couple of leaves for a while, but it has made an awesome comeback.

This is its second pot up.

Though they are one of the more cold tolerant, it seems to me they definitly do NOT like it much either. And they absolutely want as much direct sun as possible--acclimate first of course.

Does anyone have experience/tips for over wintering young Dwarf Namwah? (Non dormant.) I am hoping by summer's end it will have grown/toughened up enough that it doesn't flip out during the winter gloom

I already intend to supplement with full spectrum lights.

Yes, I uttered the dreaded W word already :P

Congrats on the namwah recovery!

From my limited experience, smaller plants seem to survive the indoors with ease during the dreaded W times. They actually do better than my larger ones.

The only advice I can think is to water much less, perhaps once every two weeks. Also, wipe the leaves every few days to keep spider mites under control. I don't mist my plant leaves, but I know others do that.

Good luck!

Thanks

Oh, you uttered an even WORSE word than the "W" word.

Hopefully no @#%$$# mites sneak inside to begin with!

I'm mostly worried about my Ensete Maurelli in regards of mites. It's so big now! It's growing so fast, it's gonna be taller than me by the time I bring it in! It's definitly getting a hair cut, LOL.
