The Myth: I should put my plants outside when they’re struggling.
The Truth: “Outside” is not a cure for all houseplant woes! In fact, putting your houseplants plants outside can cause a lot of issues.
First of all, most houseplants originally evolved in tropical environments. Your outside (even in Florida) isn't the outside most houseplants evolved in originally.
Second, houseplants are grown in greenhouses in conditions specifically designed to prep them for indoor living, not for their original outdoor environment.
So when your plant starts showing signs of stress, do NOT just put it out on the patio! It will be a huge shock to their system, and expose them to lots of pests and bugs they would never otherwise encounter.
