When exactly should I begin bringing my cacti inside? Our nightime temps are falling and I am scared of hurting my aloes and carrion flower. Is there a set time frame, or do I just need to protect them from frost. I really don't want to lose them- please help!

Tonya, I've already brought in a few things as it is getting down in the low 50's at night now. Once it starts hitting the 40's, all the others will come in for the winter. Fall is here whether we like it or not! laugh Personally, I love it!

Most cacti need a cooler, drier winter in order to bloom. I put mine on a drafty windowsill, they never freeze (some cacti don't mind freezing at all) but they definately get cooler than the interior of the house gets. I had some wonderful blooms this summer!
