    Right now it is in the brightest window I have facing South East. Spends the summer outdoors with a few hours of shade mid day. So, lots of bright light.

    This whole plant only weighs a couple of pounds. I just put the plug in the shower, lay it in the bottom, dump water on with a watering can, let it soak for half an hour then hang it on the shower curtain rod util it stops dripping. All my floors are hardwood. No damage yet

    No but, keep in mind that some have spikes 7-8' long and longer. Even this one at 2' is not easy to find space for. I have about a dozen others most of which are potted. Most require an extended dry rest if you're thinking W/C.

    I have an anceps that (of course) has super long spikes. Looks silly in a pot- I bought a huge piece of grape wood for it. The silly thing didn't start throwing out roots until it was in spike this last season. I will jump earlier this year!
