If you live in a climate with freezing winter temperatures, you will need to bring many of your succulents indoors for the winter. Each type of succulent tolerates certain temperature ranges, and not all are frost-hardy, especially in containers. Be sure to provide succulents and cactus with bright supplemental light from grow lamps in the winter, for about 12-hours per day.
