Leaves dropping!

Leaves dropping!
Posted by Amanda (i8kudzu@hotmail.com) from Atlanta, GA on 2002-02-01 12:26:36

I have what I believe to be a Magnolia potted in a large pot. It sits indoors by a window and gets a fair amount of indirect light (not too bright). Lately all of the leaves have fallen off--they basically just drooped and then fell off. The plant has received regular watering. What can I do to revive this plant and prevent this from happening again?
Thanks for your input!

    Magnolias are not good indoor plants. They require cold winter temperatures to survive, something you can't provide if you keep them indoors.
