    The Sierra form is likely not too picky about moisture in the winter, since they are usually covered in snow. Temperatures typically rise above freezing during the day though, so they are probably kept a bit damp as the snow melts. The coastal form would probably need to be kept quite wet during the winter, since they just get tons of rain that time of year in their native habitat.

    Just be nice to them. Maybe shade the pot with other pots, so less sun heats it up- give sun, give water and give it your best shot- I have no problems with them- but I do have an ideal climate, so maybe that's cheating. Just observe through trial and error.
