Zygocactus (Autumn Cactus) is a hardy variety that likes to be protected outdoors in a shaded position, away from winter rains.  Indoors in bright light as may not flower in low light areas.  Can water all year round and grows fastest in warmer months.  Will survive without water for short period but will lose condition and take time to recover if prolonged and the plant is stressed. Feed at 25% of recommended dosage monthly in growing season.  Less fertiliser, the better the shape.  High nitrogen fertilisers produce larger plants but at the expense of colour.  Repot in warmer months but doesn’t mind outgrowing the pot a little.  Can pinch back to keep compact.
