Q: I was given a pretty ixora plant as a gift. Should I leave it in the pot or put it out? What type of light does it need?
A: Ixora is a tropical plant and is not cold hardy. They like a hot sunny situation. You will have best luck if you leave it in the pot, placed in a bright area.
Q: I was given some pine lily which have been fine. Now the edges of the leaves are yellow. Are they in the right place?
A: In the fall, some yellowing is expected. I think the plant you are talking about is also known as a pine cone ginger. They should be planted in partial light away from late afternoon sun. Cut out declining stalks.
