    Hey so i had to get rid of my two budding plants and one vegetative plant for one night for risk of getting caught. I put them in a outdoor shed. The temperature outside was around 15-30 degrees. When I came back to get em they were frozen and leaves were drooping. Is it possible to revive them?!?!?! HELP PLEASE!!!:wall:

    if they had frost on em no they are dead, if not u might be able to save them but i doubt it....water freezes at 32 f. so if it got below that the water in ur plant probally froze killing all its tissue

    u can try to bring em back, u never know it might work but if ur in the bud stage and ur plant loses most of it tissue i think it'd shock and stunt the plant so bad even if u do revive it to be worthwhile...thats my opinion....the veg one u should save if possible its probally still young enough to come back strong

    darkdestruction has a good point. I'm not sure if the budding plants will kick back :(

    we need to see some pictures to tell for sure, but rule of thumb you never want your plant to be in under 55 degrees F, under 55 and all growth stops, and the plant begins to die.

    give it a try and try to revive. it hopefully will work...just cause the leafs are drooping doesnt mean they are dead. these plants are pretty hardy, now darkdestruction is right if they were covered in frost then they may be bummin.......why did you have to move them? its really hard to get from seed to harvest when you cant leave your plants in one spot all the time....these things really need to have a shedule and be in the same environment for a while to be sucessful

    No there was no frost on the plants they were just hella cold and the moisture in the dirt was pretty much frozen. I thought if it was that cold it would have preserved the plants more so than actually kill em. What yall think? Ill try to get pics up ASAP

    I was told by someone to not warm them up extremely fast. I was told to slowly raise the temperature. I believe it is kinda like when you are reviving someone with hypothermia. If you warm them up too fast they will die.

    hmmmmm, thats a good idea! if their is any way to save em this is probally it. it gets cold here early so ive been wondering how plants can survive some of our colder nights and this seems likely to be it....the temp raising slowly like outside does sound reasonable to me, this is all theory to me though anyone know where i could find any more info on this? im extremely curious about this now :bigjoint:
