Desert Rose ,leaves fell off

My sister gave me a desert rose she got from her mother in law in Florida, but the leaves all fell off. I treat it like a cactus;give it water when it needs it & it’s sitting in front of the window. I live in Columbus Ohio; we have cold months and then raining months. I ordered another one which will arrive next Friday. I just need some idea how to keep it alive . TY .

This article will help you, in the meantime, to care for these plants: [1]
