winter cactus protection

Messaggioda JoeClark » 22/11/2017, 14:14

Hi Guys,

Just wondering about winter protection for cacti. I've got some rather large optunia listed hardy to zone 4, although I'm skeptical of this. In protecting cacti it is generally a good idea to remove dehydrated/sizzled pads and then just protect the base?

Thanks, as always, for your thoughts and knowledge.

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Hi Joe Clark
zone 4 are very cold the temperature can go down from -25 to -31 Celsius or -20 - 30 Fahrenheit. A zone cllimatica frozen for our Italian latitudes. There am Opuntie that can withstand those temperatures but I would not exactly know what. It will be important however that the plants are completely dry and protected at least to the base with dry leaves, straw or other materials. I suppose that to those temperatures there is little damp and this is very good. Other I would not know how to recommend you
