They currently live on my south-ish facing windowsill in a central heated room but also heated by a log fire each evening at this time of year. Temps ranging from around 15-30C. I've recently noticed that the larger huernia is already show signs of new growth. My questions is what sort of watering regime should I operate for these plants?
