Bring my eggplant plant indoors for the winter

Post  dtnmm on 11/1/2013, 9:45 pm

My eggplant plant has been a a great producer I hate to lose it.  Has anyone ever transplant one indoors. What kind of light would I need. would I use Mels mix in a large
pot.
Anyone?   

     Thanks
       Tom

For good results you will most likely need a heated greenhouse because eggplants like it HOT.  They also like more than 10 hours of sunlight a day. I love eggplant and pretty much gorge on it in season. Good luck!
