    FANTASTIC!!!!! Now I am extremely jealous of your plants Lynn!!

    Thank you so much for the link too!! I may be doing some ordering!!

    Research their climate conditions so that you can house them for years.
    Very impressive choices as well!

    He stated that a dry winter is the worst for them, and to keep them out of the wind.
    They can stay out ( if I recall ) +12F.
    They need the dormancy.

    I'll give it a try.
    I have an unheated sun room that could be a good spot for a few months

    Have a relaxing Sunday afternoon ............. everyone !

    You can place them in a Ziploc bag and place them in the fridge to winter over. Thats what I do.

    Fridge temp needs to be 35° to 40° and keep the soil of the plant moist. If it dries the plant will die, but sealing them in a Ziploc bag produces condensation and this will help keep things damp while they slumber. If you see any mold start on the plants remove the infected area or leaf so that it doesn't spread.

    Be sure to open the bags once or twice a week for a couple minutes to allow stale air to be replaced with new.

    You are welcome everyone.
