Question re brug babies

I can't keep my cuttings in the garage - it gets too cold/no heating. Will my brug babies survive in a tiled bathroom with the vent closed?

Yes Kathi- that's right- your brug babies need some heat to keep on growing- I'd say at least 50*. Does your bathroom stay at least that warm? If it does, they should be ok. And be very careful not to overwater, as you know they are prone to rotting. Will they get some light? You want to keep them growing so they can root and be ready for spring. Hope this helps! You can also set up a shop light over them like may of us do to get them through the winter!

Hey Kylie, I'm in the far NE corner of Oklahoma, where Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas come together. It's a little town called Grove, about 3 1/2 hrs from OKC and 1 1/2 hours from Tulsa
