    So happy to see, that at the end your plants did withstand the short-term frost shock. I didn't have so much luck this winter and suffered a dramatic 95% loss of my collection. More than 70 plants, own-grown from seed, accompanying me since 2 decades. A battlefield of ugly frost damage at the end, which you mentioned correctly just showed it's pure face weeks after the happening. So I'm really really glad that you didn't suffer the same, as I enjoy checking your updates. Cheers from Germany. P.S.: the next is already sown here…

    I would never want to experience this challenge. It scares me to death. So relieved that all is well.

    Happy that your plants are good. My eyes were tearing, I was so scared about the situation. Hugs and kisses to both of you.

    I hope that your plants will be alright. I grow all of my plants outside and twenty-five years ago the temperature was 34F and a number of tropical plants died. My wife's orchids survived the cold weather. I used to have a small heated greenhouse for tropical succulents and the heater was controlled by a thermostat and not by a timer. I had plants that cost more than the greenhouse and that is why I used that type of heater. I grew cactus for more than twenty-five years and put them into containers and were stolen within a week. I was upset but, it was a good lesson and one should not keep plants in the front yard. Take care of yourself and your plants.

    What an amazing cacti and succulent collection! It was a close call, but everything is OK. It is a good idea to have a back-up heating system running simultaneously but independently, so if one system fails, the other is still operating. Many cacti and succulents are remarkably cold tolerant, but frost is a definite no-no.
