I find these hard to grow because they need a dry rest period. I was depending on a dry summer, but it was really wet this year. I am going to bring mine inside and make room for them somewhere since I don't have any indoor plants.

Wylie, I start the hibernation period about now most years. As mine grow in pots I stop watering at the end of August/beginning of September & don't give them any more for about 4-6 months! Being on a balcony that's only open at the front let's me control the watering. When the frosts are forecast, about middle/end of October, I pass them inside the flat & remove any yellow/brown leaves & put them on top of a wardrobe in one of the bedrooms & there they stay until a bud starts to appear when I give them some water sometime in the New Year.

Thank you, Aleyna! :) Glad you like the Porcelain collection as well. They originally belonged to our son-in-law's mother & he gave them to my wife.

Thank you, Amy, for the compliment, but they practically grow themselves with little help from me!
