Question
Dear Darlene:  

I'd like to now if this cactus resists to be outside in their own pot during the summer.

Thank you in advance.

Answer
Sandra,

I believe that you are asking if an Easter cactus can go outside. It can after there is no danger of frost and it should have some shade or it could get sunburned. If you want to confirm that it is an Easter cactus go to Google and enter Easter Cactus then click on images and see if the pictures match your plant. If you have more questions feel free to write again. Good luck!
