I would wait a bit Suzanne...
It's still pretty cold at night yet...
I don't start putting mine out til at least end of April..
*but I do suppose they could go out on warmer days then brought back in at night..*

You know to be honest,
I am not sure of any one particular temp..
And I have seen some in cemeteries', just litely
touched by frost, but doesn't kill the whole plant...

But that is when the plant is left out, over
the whole summer, and is gradually introduced to cooling temps over night as the season wains..
So, it does indure the cooler temps..

But if you've had them inside, they're used to say 70*'s in your house, and then when you put them out they're like, whoaaaaaaaa, what happened to the vacation area I was just in..
So, they need to get acclimated first before they can just be left out...

~~~>Headin' over to the new Forum????

Okay, that should give them a good headstart
for going out side...
if they are already used to those temps...

But remeber, even if the pipes are freezing,
the room still buffers the plants and keeps them warmer than they would be outside...

but they can start to go out earlier than a plant kept inside at a much higher temp..
