    Would a dehumidifier be practical for a greenhouse in a situation like yours?

    I am anticipating spring and summer so much because that is when all the cacti will start their growing season again

    I think this cactus is very smart. He knows how much you love your plants and he took advantage of your love because he wants to be inside your house to be cosy . Sneaky little cactus. 🙂

    I agree with NatureGarden. This looks like something close to Pilosocereus pachycladus.

    Hi! Have you thought of getting a dehumidifier? Here we use them in damp basements etc. Amazing the amount of water they pull from the air. We had one growing up. Had to dump the bucket every day until my Dad ran a hose from it to a drain. ☺

    Hi, I had this happening to a Selenicereus anthonyanus, parts of the plant would go brown and mushy and the whole plant would be covered by these orange spots. It really hates the cold, but a part of it is nowadays with Miss Orchid girl, and it gets the warm temps that it needs to thrive. Hope Hans's plant is not going more orange than this, halloween is over after all. lol

    Poor chaps. A bit off subject Lynn, did you ever try a grow light on your cacti seedlings? I was thinking of trying a LED light bulb off eBay, again to help me give my seedlings a good start.

    Thank you. I'm in Southern California (inland valley) and it's been down to 26 Fahrenheit so far. I keep checking my little cacti collection for cold damage. They are on a covered patio and wrapped in blankets at night. Now I know what the signs of cold damage are!

    Hello Lin. Plant in the video is some species of Pilosocereus from Brazil. Also one of your Rhipsalis plants in the hanging basket show signs of cold/ high humidity damage, black spots. These spots both, black and orange are not really harmless, usually it is first sign of fungal / bacterial disease – often Fusarium fungi and can unfortunatelly kill the plant over time. Also minimal temperatures for the subtropical and tropical cacti and other succulents vary of course, but one thing that I can recommend that these plant need is to have at least few hours of higher temperatures in the day /week. What I mean – for example I have set my termostat in my greenhouse to 7 degrees celsius minimum, but from 12:0014:00 o´clock I have set it to 13 degrees celsius. These plants need some higher temperatures in the week / day especially if humidity is high. Temperatures in my greenhouse can vary from negative 2 degrees celsius at night to even 30 on sunny days, but at least 13 at cloudy or very cold freezing days / ouside /. I do not overwinter tropical species in my greenhouse. 2 weeks of this cold temperatures is enough to slowly kill the plants.
