lithops and cactus

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.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Thanks for the advice i didnt know that, just have to keep them indoors.

    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
