Mine gets well-watered and fed during spring and summer and watered a little in winter. I don't think it ever really dries out.
Thanks Paul for your comments, much appreciated. I try to keep them well organised to make for easier care and keeping them tidy plus removing plant debris significantly helps keep the mealy-bug menace under control. A larger greenhouse has certainly helped with this.

Really great collection, just As I would have expected! The sarmentosa looks familiar & looks very good in that pot.

What minimum temperature for the two greenhouses?

Hi Brian, Thank you for your kind words and I'm glad you like the Crassula sarmentosa in it's pot, it's one of my favourites. I only have one greenhouse but it is crammed, so maybe you thought there were two, I wish. My greenhouse is at a minimum of 3C but unless it is very cold it is usually at 5 or 6C. If I had two, I would have one as a cold greenhouse, with no heat and the other would be this.
