It looks like it's related to a calathea to me.

In which case, it likes a moist atmosphere, indirect sunlight and a reasonably warm temperature, no lower than 15C. Keep moist but not soggy.

They can also come in via the holes left for pipes to go through - some spray expanding foam from the DIY store can solve that problem easily.

Similar here in North Yorks, but clouded over a bit towards evening, meaning we're due for a frost-free night.

The only thing you can do is cut it back to a section that is still reasonably vertical, put it in a light position in a warm room and hope. Since the plant is not frost hardy, your chances of it recovering are not very good, I'm afraid.

Absolutely throwing it down here most of the day, so the frost and ice is gone, if nothing else.

Bad luck, Zoomer - have a hot toddy, it might help.

Down to under -4 here at the moment, but supposed to warm up tomorrow.

You can wash greenfly off with mildly soapy water, but they will come back - they are a major pest in greenhouses in winter, as there are few predators.
