In late summer or fall, when temperatures drop near freezing, cut back on watering and stop fertilizing. Before the first frost, move the brugmansia into storage to go dormant. All you need is a cool, dark, frost-free place — 30 to 45 degrees F. is ideal.

They should be planted in a good, commercial potting mix. In cold winter areas, the planter should be brought back indoors during the fall and winter months.
