A study of frost damage
December 29, 2009 02:17PM
The fan malfunctioned in the greenhouse and the temperature went below freezing. Some of the plants suffered damage, but the damage was not uniform. This photo is of Epiphyllum oxypetalum behind a citrus. The center of the Epi shows freeze damage, while other parts of it are unaffected.

This shows how some of the blooms on the Crassula ovata (Jade) froze (center of the Jade with blooms against the blue Pilosocereus), and most of them did not.

This is a Jade that mostly froze, except for the side nearest the window.

This shows a begonia that froze one side, but the Rhipsalis was unaffected.

Hi c-jo. Yes, I knew the heater was not working well, but I was too cheap to have it fixed. Instead, I waited until I froze one of my nice Rhipsalis micrantha colere Now it is fixed and runs well.
More pics of the whole green house please!!!
