Never taken many Lobivia's, but managed to find a couple to show willing!

Pseudolobivia.

I presume Soehrensia counts as a big Lobivia?

So how many grow these in unheated greenhouses or cold frames ?

I was thinking of moving all mine out of the greenhouse (kept at about 5deg C) to a cold frame to free up some bench space ?

I did not for this winter as I had the space in the end and did not want to risk it with some quite nice old plants.

The cold frames are dry from the view of falling rain but very damp due to moisture in the ground. I leave the vent open all the time and optuntias has survived fine

Anyone have any experience to share ?

Mine have all been grown in a cold greenhouse for many years. I have grown Soehrensia in a cold greenhouse for a decade or so.
