i believe there are two options.. neither which are a guaranteed way to save your poor hosta

the first is carefully digging out your hosta.. be very careful and dig out a large portion of the soil around it because you do not want to damage the roots, especially now. i would probably put it in a bucket and keep it in my house for a few days near a window

Question by Maricela L: can you plant hosta plants indoors?

Read answers:

Answer by ANGEL
Yes! Hosta can be grown indoors, near a curtained window. An east-facing window provides the perfect growing area for Hostas, where plants get morning sun and afternoon shade. In general, the blue-leafed hostas require shade, while the gold, yellow, and white-leafed hostas can tolerate more sun.
You don’t want to bake them, so avoid the sun in the hotest part of the day & be careful that their roots don’t dry out. “Hostas are considered shade-tolerant plants, but most do not thrive if grown in deep shade.”

Question by Susan E: found a white,lard like substance,about 2 cups worth next to a hosta plant. It was about 5 in in the ground?
it has no small and was partially under the dirt about 5 inches so it wasn’t dumped there. It is in a private spot so I can’t imagine anyone putting it there. I was surprised at how large it was. The scary part is my dog was licking it, that is how I found it. So far he is doing ok.
I meant, has no smell
