Massonia pustulata

Frost here was about minus 18 C ( 0F) last winter and it killed all my
Massonia under glass canopy. The winter before was very bad for them but
they survived lows of about minus 15 C (5F). They can certainly withstand
frost, as can Polyexena, various Lachanalia, and Ledebouria, at least if
kept dryish; but they don't like it and the leaves are usually damaged.
Sustained hard freezing below about minus 10C (14F) is very risky.
Minimum temperatures here this winter are about minus 3 to minus 5 C so far.
