Hi,

I was looking at some of my cacti today in my Greenhouse and I noticed that some were looking a little dull. Is it normal for cacti to look a little dull and shriveled going into their winter rest?

Thanks

Depending on the species, some of them can actually shrivel up and completely retract into the soil. Many will to some degree show some signs of dormancy in the winter. Which ones are looking "under the weather"?
