I have a very happy start of this unique cactus hanging under the shady trees. It seems to need very little, in spite of our hot, dry, windy summer, I only water once a week. In one month's time, it has increased in size by 30%. Zone 7b-8a. It has to be wintered indoors with almost no water thru winter.
