You have some good plants there Spro, and they look very healthy. A new greenhouse is always exciting, so much space waiting to be filled! Enjoy!

Your plants look good in their new home Spro, what sort of heating will you use?

The Eulychnia, Echinocactus and Haageocereus won't survive in an unheated greenhouse. Even with bubblewrap they prefer to be frost free. The Eulychnia might prefer to be kept above 5°C.
