Christmas Cactus 2.0

Posted: December 7, 2016 in Uncategorized

Our Christmas cactus has now bloomed! I had personally never seen a Christmas cactus bloom before, and it is quite remarkable to me. I find it interesting that there are different layers of petals. Each bloom is almost like a small red Christmas tree with large and very few branches. Or not. Anyway, for those of you who are like me and haven’t seen a Christmas cactus flower before, I thought I’d share it. It’s quite an interesting flower!

    Mine’s in bloom too. They are fascinating.

    • I saw pictures of other colors: white, pink, etc. This plant started with one piece my mother got from her friend. We stuck it in a pot outside and it managed to survive despite the fact that it rarely got watered and almost froze in November – but then we noticed it had little buds at the ends. So we brought it in 🙂
