I just bought my first Coral Cactus. Is it best to have this unusual plant in a pot, with a hole in the bottom for watering? Or just water from the top once the plant is dry?

Coral Cactus – outside or inside plant?

Got me one of those coral cactus. Its beautiful. Now I find out it isn’t really a cacti but a tropical plant? Okay, here in Illinois right now the conditions should be perfect-high humidity 70’s, the dew point is 75 or above and its hotter than hades on a warm day, this thing should be in 7th heaven. But, there are 2 brown spots developing on either side of the edges, elongated. Get it in? Dry it out? Water it more? What? I would really love to continue to nuture this plant. Also the pot that it came with seems to have the stones or gravel on top of the dirt (I assume) anyway the planting medium, glued down. Water filters thru, but its just weird. I’ve never seen such before. Is this for shipping purposes? Or is this a needed? Please help before it rots off. thanx Marla
