Such simple beauty! Thanks for sharing.Joni
Cacti are like that. One day you turn around and there is this beautiful intricate flower that you swear wasn't there a minute ago. Its beautiful
It's the perfect time of year for just such a splash of color, huh?
Oh, yours is coming along nicely! I need to cut and transfer a bunch of mine. I'd probably have enough to cover all our windowseats.
And isn't that just a welcome bloom for the holidays?
It's called a Christmas cactus because if you care for it a certain way (see below) it was *always* be covered in blossoms for Christmas. I love this plant :)There's an easy trick to making these bloom every year. They need some down time to "sleep" for a few months. I'm not sure I remember this properly, but I think you put them in a dark place, no watering, about September. Then, end of November or so bring it back out into the light and water it again. By Christmas it will be *covered* in flowers. After flowering is done, pinch back the stems a few segments and they will branch out, making a bushier, fuller plant with even more flowers for next Christmas.
My mother always had one in our window when I was little I would wait for it to bloom around the holidays! I have not thought about it in years such happy memories! Such a lovely photo!
amy is right, but also the darj place has to be a bit cool too. when you bring it back into the warmth of the house it blooms. My MIL's has about 50 blooms on hers right now!
Yep, all year they are hideous(IMO) and look like they are about to die, but you wake up one morning and TaDaaaaaa, they are gorgeous!!!
I love Christmas cactus'. They remind me of being home with my Mother. :)
I was pleasantly surprised that mine (the "mother" of yours) is in bloom again for Christmas since it bloomed in October. Go figure!Seems that my cactus' baby bloomed after it left home--just like my human baby!Enjoy.Mom
