Hi Kevin, Ita a combination of both. During their active winter or summer growing season depending on the species, I grow the Brunvigia's outside for most of the time. For those cont.that are about to flower, I temporarily take them inside under cover to stop the weather from spoiling the flowers and the seeds. I also store them under cover when dormant, again to stop them rotting during excessive wet/humid weather conditionsNot an easy genus to please, but when they bloom, its all been worth while. Best wishes Bill D.
