Might be nice in Florida, too.
Someone was talking about those and had one that was knocked over but they stuck it in the pot and it rooted and grew. they talked like they were easy to get cuttings from. we do have plenty of sun that they like and someone said they like their feet to dry out so that would be good here since I’m in a dry area. I think next time I see one I’ll buy one. The petals in your photo remind me of orchids

They're easy from cuttings. Just cut or break off a piece and let the wound "skin over" i.e., let the milky sap harden a few days, up to a week, before sticking it into some "cactus mix" i.e., fast draining soil, then giving it a good sousing with some water, wait a few days till the pot's dry, then water again. The key thing is don't keep it too wet or it will rot. They usually root in a couple weeks to a month. That's how I rooted about 100 plants a while back.
