Oh wow! I just discovered these adorable things today, and I think I'm in love.
I've read that they like sun - but not too much, and can handle a chill - but not too much. I've fallen for a few hybrids, but I noticed they need to be a few years old to flower. Is this true?
I live in missouri, our summer is HOT enough and humid, but our winters do freeze. I could bring it inside in the winter, but it would be in full shade, or under my office lights. Would they be ok like this when dormant. Would they even go dormant since the inside is 70+~
Also, what is your favorite variety?
I like the look of the short fat round cacti rather than the long cylinder ones, but I'd like a variety that gets a wealth of blooms, or has frequent pups which would then flower.
I saw some are fragrant - Is the fragrance a GOOD one? (not like those corpse ones.)
Does anyone here sell some, or is the best place to buy still Huntington Botanical Gardens?
