prior to the first frost i remived all the blossoms and cut back the stems about one third, removed the geranoum from the pot, removed most of the dirt from the roots,let dry for 2 days and placed them in brown paper bags with the root base pointing up. . after 3 weeks I opened the paper sacks and removed the plants. i noticed several of the stems had turned brown on their tips I cut some of the tips back to where i could see green again. i also sprayed water on the dirt and roots. My question is it okay to leave the tips brown and can i quit watering the roots until i repot them in freash potting soil next spring. . in other words should i just leave them alone or do i continue to water the roots and check the yips of the stems?
