Hello all,

I got this cactus about 6 months ago, but when I repotted it I forgot to keep the original plastic pot it came in, which had its type/species and information about it. It has been doing quite well anyway, and has grown quite a bit. I keep it cactus-specific potting mix outside in its pot (with a hole in the bottom for drainage), getting good sun every day, and watering it every 2 weeks. My questions are:

1. Based on the attached image, what type of cactus do I have?
2. How do I care for it during a cold and potentially snowy winter?

I answered in your second post:
