Plastic greenhouse question

Hi Guy's
I was wondering if i could put my Holiday and Easter cactus in one of those small plastic greenhouses to summer out doors or would it be best to just have them on a stand outside?
I'm new to 'vacationing' my plants outside (this will be my first year) so i figure now's the time to ask :D
Thanks for any help

Hi -- You could do either. It's probably best to have them out on a stand if temperatures allow for that. What would the summer temp range be where you are located? Vegetative growth rate increases as temperature increases above 50°F (10-25C). They shouldn't be subjected to temps below 50°.
