I have all typical Lobivia at 4°C in a greenhouse.

All Soehrensia up to -15°C in a rain protected cold house with fresh air (we call it Patagonium).

Hi,

For what it's worth, I did once try two Lobivia in a cold frame over winter, and they both turned to mush. I suspect it was damp rather than cold.

Best wishes,
Sheila
