Things To Do -- November

By Barbara Rengers
1. Some of the Crassulas, Anacampseros and stemless Mesembryanthemums may be in flower now, along with Mammillari schiedeana and M. plumosa. Keep these warmer and water more than others.

2. Keep your winter quarters as bright as possible.

3. The best temperatures in which to winter your plants are between 40 and 55 degrees.

4. Depending on individual conditions, a piece of cardboard between plants and window glass may be needed on frosty nights for added protection against the cold.

5. Leave all propagating for next spring.

6. Fungal infections can be reduced by plenty of fresh air. Use fans to keep air around plants moving.
