This cactus loves being in a sheltered, partially shaded spot outdoors in the warm months but is not frost hardy, so bring indoors for winter and place in a sunny, bright spot so that you cactus keeps its shape. No need to water during this time as it is dormant in winter.  Cactus need bright sunlight, excellent drainage, and infrequent watering to prevent rot (none in winter). Underwater than overwater this one. Fertilise at 1/4 strength of recommended dosage.
