Bringing in your succulents for winter/cold weather

When temps drop below 50F/10C for more than a few days you’ll need to be ready to protect your succulents from the cold. This video is for those of you who don’t have a place to keep them outside and need to bring them indoors.

(For outdoors, watch this ) We discuss a timeline to help you get your outdoor plants ready to bring inside, watering, light requirements, dormancy and more tips to keep your sucs happy until it’s time to move them back outside.

A few more tips:

Light- Turn your plants occasionally to help distribute the light more equally.

Wind- Putting a fan on your plants will help strengthen stems and leaves.
