A couple of pics

Recommended Posts

Hi, I thought I'd post a couple of pics of my cephalotus. This is the first year I've had a greenhouse and they have done really well and coloured up nice and dark in full sun. Not sure what to do with them over the winter, I left them outside last winter in a little plastic cold frame and they didn't do too well at all but maybe in the greenhouse they would be more protected and do ok?

Great Little collection coming along there. Keep it up.

Some people bring indoors on windowsill, but that is entirely your decision

They'll tolerate frosts, indeed it's thaught that for dark clones, i.e Eden Black, that the frosts contribute to better coloration when the new growing season arrives. However, if a freeze gets predicted get them inside, a prolonged freeze will either kill them or knock them back very badly, I learned the hard way.

Thanks for the replies. I learned the hard way last year too, the three on the left were lovely dense plants with loads of pitchers on each plant. I think I'll at least bring the two Hummers in if it freezes this winter!

Thanks, I love the greenhouse. Have to fit most of the cacti and succulents back into the house for the winter though, and we've only got five windows in our house! Don't know how I'm going to manage it.
