    unless your green house is heated all winter, you'll need to bring them in. they won't need any light at all while stored for the winter.

    Pereskiopsis is a weed,

    Check out the seed trading fourms, most people trim their collection to bring indoors this time of year and give away the trimmings for the price of shipping.

    Yeah soils dry. The cuts rooted about a week after callous. They are in a southwest window and are getting only 8 hours of sun light. Except for a few minutes when I flip the light on in the room they are in.. Do you think this are grandpa's ( large pup) or do they look active as what I was lead to believe they were.. Their suppose to be San Pedro's
