👏🏻👏🏻 Mine manage well enough in the house, though they do go green until they get back out into the sun 💚🖤💚

You must have the magic touch Jacqueline 👍 the leaves always start dropping on mine .. I'm thinking of trying out the greenhouse this year as Monte put his there on Friday ? @awomanonabike

Some of the bottom leaves do drop off but it doesn't seem to do them any harm. Our house is quite cool! Is your greenhouse heated?

Reassuring to know your leaves drop too, since we got insulated house is quite cosy ... do you water at all during winter ? Monte mumbled something about just being Frost free ? My greenhouse isn't heated but I am tempted to get a heater 🤔 @awomanonabike

Funnily enough we have just got the house insulated too and I'm wondering how happy they will be as house is a lot cosier. I have just ordered a small greenhouse heater to keep the frost off but not sure about how effective/£ it will be 🤔 I give them a little water every 10 days or so, though I don't water the other succulents at all so not sure why I water these 🤔🤔🤔

I do normally water a bit just like you but I have a feeling they prefer to be dry over winter, I think I need to do a bit more research on this I really don't want to lose this one ☝️ if I come across any groundbreaking info I'll pass it on @awomanonabike 😊
