    Nat what media did you use? I have mine in a mix of organic seed starter and organic potting mix with ferts and it sent up a top node that I broke off and then another popped up in its place. Cool temps should be fine for it as long as it gets warm days but how cold is it over there? Also you can bring it in under lights, you might want to let the top of the media dry out some before watering it again. I'm kinda going by how I'm growing mine, sorta leaving it alone for the most part and watering it maybe once or twice a week. Actually mine needs to be reported soon and I think I need more organic potting soil if I'm using a hanging basket for summer

    Vb try fertilizing you can use a cactus fert but what I use is already in the media, it took a bit but it just threw out the node maybe 2 weeks ago but it seems to be happy

    Mine's in some cactus mix with a bit of extra perlite blended in. The weather's been weird this winter, and we've had high temps anywhere from the low 50s to 80+ degrees. Lows can range from near freezing to the mid-50s. Rains have been strangely absent, but I water the cactus when its soil dries out.

    Mine is in 50/50 peat/sand. I've been watering about once a week probably, trying not to overwater and rot it. Hopefully see some growth soon! If this dies though, I will definitely try reacquire the plant.

    Ya it can be the weather, you might want to bring it inside until it warms up outside, but yes water once no more then twice a week if your lighting gets hot like mine does. I wish I knew more nat about what may be going on, but I think it's weather related some how, I know they don't like cold temps very much. I'm just trying to remember the weather pattern when I was in Vietnam for a bit, they had cold days maybe in the 60s in the rainy season and pretty hot when it was dry. Hummm I wish I really knew, maybe I'll go back to Vietnam and hunt some vines down and see if I get ideas. Now who wants to lend me a few grand and a passport to get there?

    I brought mine inside. It won't get as much light, but it'll be a lot warmer (especially at night).
