This cactus loves being outdoors but is not frost hardy, so bring indoors for winter and place in a bright spot. No need to water during this time as it is dormant in winter. Easy to grow and care for. Cactus need bright sunlight, excellent drainage, and infrequent watering to prevent rot (none in winter).
