Beside this, do succulents need to come inside during winter?

The plants know when winter is coming, by sensing shorter days and lower temperature. However, you can trick your succulent by winterizing them. You can bring the plant indoors, provide it with proper care, before it gets too cold outside. In short, the best time to bring succulents indoors is when fall comes around.

Also Know, how do you take care of succulents in the winter? Keep Them Warm and Illuminated. Place a dormant succulent in an area with at least three to four hours of bright light. Succulents need less light during the winter than when they are actively growing during the summer. Succulents can survive with indirect light during the winter.

In this manner, can succulents stay outside in winter?

Of course, if you are growing cold hardy succulents, they can stay outside all winter. All succulents rated higher than Zone 5 can't survive the cold, and need to be indoors for the winter.

What is the lowest temperature succulents can survive?

Succulents tend to prefer a temperate climate with the temperatures ranging from 60 to 80°F. Some can tolerate temperatures as low as 40°F or as high as 90°F. Gardeners sometimes use these extreme temperatures to “stress” their succulents into changing color.
