FYI - they are outdoors in a plastic greenhouse all winter, November - now.
Where I live in Marin County in Northern California it goes down to 28 degrees sometimes, average winter night is about 40. This winter has been very cold and very wet, our high temp for about a month was 52.
I water the potted L anceps in winter 1x/month, mounted 2x/month.
When the temp is forecast to go below 32, I use a small space heater with a switch that goes on at 35 and off at 45. I'm not worried about temps down to 31 or a little lower, but the weather person isn't always correct. Plus, if I've watered recently, they don't like the cold. In fact, I've had some mishaps due to things getting / staying wet this winter - some flowers wilted after some rain sprayed in in a big storm, lost a whole growth and spike and two new buds on the Nittany Frost cross after watering that didn't dry out.
Next year I will probably keep things even drier.
Several AU Dens are under same conditions and love it, lots of flower spikes and buds.
