we have quite a large area of shadecloth over a pergola which is planted with succulents. I would like to include Cacti and wondering if any particular genera are more suited to this sort of area. I suspect the Shadecloth is 70%... Great for our 40 degree days but not so good in winter... Any advice appreciated... Gary

I'd recommend gymnocalycium, most prefer a bit of shade. A lot of mine get stroppy when i leave them in full sun.
