Succulents In Winter

After last week's rainstorm, I couldn't help notice how beautiful my succulents were with the raindrops beading up on them like diamonds.

But it made me realize that now is the time to prepare them for the winter months ahead.

After a little research, this is what I learned:
If you live in a moderate climate, you can leave succulents outdoors, as long as they are under an eave, or sheltered, protecting them from too much rain.

For colder climates, bring the plants indoors and place in a cool room, but not in direct sunlight.

Do not overwater.
 Succulents don't need a lot of water anyway, but especially during the winter.
Also, they need adequate air circulation.

Don't forget that drainage is key.
Soggy soil will rot their roots.
Keep in mind that some succulents are more winter hardy than others, but with proper care, you should be able to enjoy your succulent plants all year long!

Do you have a suggestion for growing succulents through the winter?
Have you had much success or have you lost your plants anyway?
I welcome your feedback!
