    I’ve got a rather large Schlumbergera and my grandkids are coming over for a couple weeks – I can’t keep it in the house with them around. It’s 15 years old and nearly four feet across.

    My question is, can I move it to the garage where it’s still a bit cold these days? Lows at night are around 40°-50° F. Any precautions I should take?

    Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

    Hi that’s a huge fellow! For it to grow so large, in 15 years, that’s amazing!

    I would simply make sure there’s a little square of light in the garage, and then for the cold, perhaps just wrap it in a bit of translucent cloth or something? Maybe also wrap the pot with bubble wrap?

    Perhaps you can wait for a few other people to comment, too.
