I'd treat it like any other succulent in house over winter,, ,, slight infrequent waterings and indirect sun probably southern exposure,, I place all miy succulents in southern light indoors, And I've never had a problem,, I have one simular to that one,, the edges of the leaves get redder with more sun exposure indoors but have placed in dappled sun out doors in spring and summer,

JIffy - mine was called a Flapjack succulent, and I still have my original, plus a baby in the same pot. (unfortunately they got some sort of bug over the summer indoors which attacked several leaves, but it's still hanging in there hopefully for a complete recovery!)

Diane gave you GREAT advice as to how to overwinter it indoors - good luck!

Diane - my pencil cactus did not ever take root.
I'd looooooooooooove some more if you're offering?
