    Depends on where you live. If it's warm in the summer months, by all means put them outdoors. Use something to raise the pots off the ground so that you don't end up getting a lot of bugs crawling into the plant. A warm sunny spot will do them wonders. Water more often when outdoors as they will dry out much quicker than indoors.

    I put mine out in the summer and bring them back in when it gets cold.

    Do you get very cold winter's where you live? If so, they have to be in a pot so you can bring them in. But if you live in a place where it stays a nice 75 degrees all year then hey, no worries for your cactus. In fact they love dry and weather. Hope this helps.

    Many prickly pears can take colder weather, even snow. I have seen them in snow in Flagstaff AZ. Most you will need to bring inside before it gets below 40 or so. Be sure they don't get too much rain either.
