Thanks Bev, I'm afraid the succulent addiction has gotten a little out of hand. I brought some of the containers in for the winter and took cuttings from the ones that were too big to keep under the lights.
It's hard to let them freeze. Sighing!

Wow--Yes, great collection Susie! I'm thinking you need a solarium or heated greenhouse for sure--they are way too cool to let freeze Crying

Dirt, I have 3 sets of 3 shelf lights but Succulents aren't the only thing I keep over. It is cold enough in the winter here that a winter greenhouse isn't an option for me. So I either have to let some things freeze or get enough willpower to quit bringing all the plants home that I think are beautiful. Hilarious!

oh that's difficult I'm sure! I confess I have similar trouble here too.
I vote you keep bringing them home, though--your arrangements are way cool Thumbs up
