    I purchased two and planted them in large terra cotta pots to bring them inside the ingested barn for the winter, next to a south window. I added one bag of top soil to one bag of gravel to one bag of all purpose sand and a hefty helping of perlite. Can’t believe how much they’re blooming off that mix. Zone 6 Michigan
