Xeria e-Zine
September 01, 2022

Which are your favorite succulents? Do you despair when you think how much you spend on them every year? Why not winter them indoors, under lights? They need a lot more light than just what they would get in a window, and sometimes they get too cold there. So how do you do it? I'm glad you asked!

September 1 2022

Right now is a really good time to get prepared - you don't need to bring all your plants in just yet, if you are in a place with no risk of frost yet. But you can get ready for it. Where will you put them?

An out of the way room that stays cool but not freezing, and access to electricity for the lights, and some staging to put them on is all you need.

A basement works well, as it usually has all the things necessary to overwinter your succulents. Failing that, an extra bedroom, or even the laundry or utility room.

The Winterizing Succulents e-Book is a good resource, with lots of tips on all aspects of bringing your succulents indoors for the winter.

Keep in mind that not all succulents like to be brought inside. The hardy types like Sedum and Sempervivum will just pout, so leave those out in the cold, where they thrive.
