YES IT IS! Hehe, just bought this beauty home today. I transplanted it, but I didn't notice that it was planted a lot crooked lol. I'll fix it tomorrow. I used a 50% mulchy soil, 25% ground dirt, and 25% gravel/sand and topped it off with some sand.

It's about 18" tall.

Sadly, it looks like it has been growing in insufficient light for some time now. The thin area of the plant can be weak and break easily. I've had the same problem with some plants I purchased last fall. I bought them from a heated greenhouse in November and I had to move them to greatly reduced indoor light.

As far as keeping the cutting straight, try using river rock or pea gravel for support.

It was in a plastic pot and I transfered it to my pot. I didn't realize the root ball leaning before I buried it lol...I just have to dig it back up and reposition it.

Yeah, it will get TONS of sunlight where it is outside.

Good. Remember to slowly acclimate the plant to the sun.

Why? It was sitting in an open-aired gardening center only about 2 miles from where I live.

?

Also, some ants are living in the pot as well...is that okay?

I've put gravel on the top of the soil, so now it's hard to tell if it's dried out. How often should I water it?

Excellent questions.

No, you do not need to acclimate the plant if you're going from full sun to full sun.

Ants farm aphids, mealy bugs, and scale. It's best to keep them under control.

Good point about the gravel. That is a strong argument against using it. But if you don't have very many plants you can use the "lift" test. If the pot feels light, it's time to water. After a while, you get a feel for how long it takes the soil to dry out.

Some ants just live there... but the ones in texas eat EVERYTHING.... They claimed a cereus of mine a few years ago.... I've since poisoned the place.

The other alternative I found is some long term soil soakings... like buy a tub, fill it upwith water, and put the pot in it... get rid of the ants that climb on the main stalk of the plant... that should flush them out in 2-3 days.

every couple of days or twice a week. But in summer time and when the growing kicks in every other day or so. assuming the soil is well draining.
