I have a VERY SMALL Cylindropuntia Imbricata (spineless cholla). I bought it online and it only has 3 "tubes" on it.
Last fall-winter we had temps down in the low-mid 20's for several days.
The guy I bought it from said must have plenty of time in the sunlight, and that indoor lighting on it will not be sufficient.
But what if we again have days with days with temps in the 20's?
Which would be riskier: leaving it in the sunlight in 20-degree weather? Or keeping the plant inside in warm temperatures but no sunlight?

If its Cylindropuntia Imbricata, its extremely cold hardy. I would be more worried about keeping it dry when it cold outside.
