Very nice 👍🏼 - I’m wondering when I should bring mine indoors soon, polytunnel temps have been single digits the last few nights now. I don’t know if it’s a blip or if this is norm as I thought that didn’t get that cold till later in year 🤔

I wondered if it was the variation in temperature, warm first thing in the morning, cold when we're out at work and then warm again in the evening, but I guess that's pretty much the same at your house. I'm a bit worried about it being in the greenhouse as it's not heated. 🤔🤔

@pelly I've had this a few years Jane and this year cut it down and with the help of the succulentholics on here was able to make babies from them there is now 6 in this pot with right amount of grit n compost its thrived so pleased as it was a gift from an open garden I went to 😄

My one and only #succulentsunday all these were babies at beginning of the year as the dreaded vine weevil got it so just stuck the flowers into gritty soil I now have 5 healthy young plants and it is kept indoors on cold nights and put out in the sun when it has its hat on that is 🙄

@valjones-hughes funny enough Val my neighbour recently went to Cornwall and saw loads outdoors, so much so he liked them that much he bought one himself not sure it will survive as he's not green fingered at all its been outside all time he's had it and never watered it yet but has asked when to bring it in so I've told him time will tell! I'm hoping this will get the side flowers in time like you see them in Cornwall 😆👌

Pleased with these, having suffered the dreaded Vine Weevil I cut this back and stuck the babies in to try revive them, I now have 5 babies all doing well which will take over the parent plant and put on a good show hopefully #succulentsunday 💜💜💜

@angiecrazycatlady i had to cut top off earlier this year as it got the dreaded vine weevil, it self healed and has produced some good size flowers at top about 4 and produced the babies at bottom so looks a bit odd, will leave it til next year and see if they spread up to top flowers, just glad it survived 😄

They are amazing the way they sprout babies from everywhere. May have to chop one of mine next year as it's getting too top heavy, do you keep your indoors or in greenhouse during winter 😊

It was in summerhouse during last winter but going to bring it in this year as too cold really, winter suns not high enough to hit the summerhouse so quite cold for it, will bring it in for a bit of warmth 😐

@Jasonsparkes1 this was the new shoots last year when I cut it back, but they've dried up and died, going to cut it right down and repot with gravel in to see if it comes back again this year it was given to me and its lovely if you get it right but I'm doing something wrong clearly 🤔😣
