        @Marley Farley Thank you … In the summer I put them in a Perspex shelter and in the winter I bring them into the house.

          Mine just never took off this year. I think that it may have got too hot in the greenhouse, is that possible?

            @longk I think that is possible. They grow in tropical forests around Rio de Janeiro so are not used as much heat and dry air as desert cacti.
