Another FWIW post. I grow only Phals, and I grow them only inside my house, year-round. About half of them are in a large south-facing window that has sheer curtains that can be pulled if the sun...

I have (had) a medium-sized Christmas cactus -- and maybe it's a Thanksgiving or Easter cactus, I don't really know. It's the kind that has the spiky leaves as opposed to the rounded leaves. (Well,...
