Hello everyone, i have taken an interest in lithops and cacti and wondered if i could keep them in my unheated 6'x6' greenhouse throughout the year.

       Thanks in advance..

A lot of cacti will collapse if frozen.you would need a heater on a frost stat.

I have kept Cacti and lithops in a unheated Greenhouse and now in a unheated Conservatory for years

As long as they are kept dry between November and Beginning of March they will be Fine

Hi Buzzy2...thanks for advice, lovely photos...thats how i want mine. I'm going to try growing some from seed. i have seen some grown on plants online but the carriage is very expensive for each plant.
