Christmas Cactus


Christmas Cactus

Finally in bloom after a very long wait. It seems happy in the only room without a radiator!

Lindak, I'm pleased yours is flowering well.

Janey, we were tying to remember when and where I bought this, then remembered it came from my old Mums house some years ago. She used to keep it on her bathroom windowsill and it often had a fine covering of talc! :o)

Haha! That's great that it's with you now.
Do you know, I was going to mention my Mums too, which lived in the front room for years, a large round creature, with small leaves and flowers, bright pink, she was very thrilled with it..:o)

Janey, it must have been the favoured plant of their generation!

Yes, a bit like a parlour Palm in the Edwardian times :o))

Aren't they just fabulous plants to have flowering in the darkest days of the year? 😀

I have a red one that opened its first flower on Black Friday! 😀

David, apologies for my late reply. I have been coughing and coughing for about five days now and have not felt inclined to look in on GoY. Anyway, hopefully on the road to recovery now and happy to say the flowers on the Christmas Cactus are still looking gorgeous! I hope yours is dong well ... :o)

Sorry to hear about your coughing, Shirley, 😢 but I hope you recover very quickly!

Apart from one bud falling off with the pad attached, my plant is doing very well, thanks & I'm glad to hear that yours too is still going fine! 👍😀
