    HELLO everybody!

    I’ve had this plant for about 2 years now but doesn’t know the name. It’s been in a pot and I’m hoping to transfer it outside when possible.

    Does anybody know this plant and can they survive winter without protection?

    I live in the colder zone 3 of Canada , and have only seen this plant as a house plant but I’m sure in the warmer regions it would grow well outside.

    @mumamafia: Yes, cactus and succulents can be bottom wet when watering. Just remember:

    • Water only in summer, its growing season.
    • Water only when the soil is completely dry. To check this is the case, carefully stick a finger in the soil.
    • Water deeply but make sure before putting it back to its decorative pot or saucer, water drips off. The best way to do this is to get a bowl or basin, fill it with water and then soak in  just the bottom part the cactus pot. Leave it for 10-15 mins and then remove the pot from the water, put it on the sink to drip off.

    Don’t hesitate to message us again if you need more information.  🙂
