Christmas Cactus

I enjoy my Christmas Cactus plants. And I look forward each year to their blooms.  This year they are blooming well ahead of time.  


As you can see, there are multiple blooms still waiting to open.  

I will take other pictures as the flowers bloom.

 

Does anyone else share my love for this plant?? If so, please share your pictures with our community!!!

@CynthieLu  Thank you! I love it. 

Re: Christmas Cactus

@ather ,

That pot for your plant is great!  I like the hair effect, too!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@tsavorite  Thank you! I originally had a bunny eared cactus in it but I think my Christmas cactus looks much better. 

Re: Christmas Cactus

Love the pink blooms @ather; and that pot is beautiful! 😍

Re: Christmas Cactus

Re: Christmas Cactus

@Cissy63, I saw a handful of Christmas cactus at Trader Joe's the other day. I'm thinking about going back to maybe pick up one. Do they require a lot of diligent care? I'm gonna have to do some research. I don't have the greenest of thumbs ... 

Re: Christmas Cactus

@itsfi   Well I don’t give them a lot of attention!!  Some water when the soil feels dry.  And I think there is some issues that some say put them in different lighting so they will bloom.  I have never done that.  They have stay near this window for years. When we put in the bay window I put them on the window sill. It gets eastern and south eastern sunlight.  They do get some Miracle Gro once in a while.   

Oh I would love to see the plant you choose 🥰

Re: Christmas Cactus

So here are some updates on how the plants are doing.  I have kept them in the same location since the summer.   They get very little water.  But last month or possibly late September,  they were given some Miracle Grow with their water.  

The last pictures were on 11/6/22.  And these are from 11/10/22

Re: Christmas Cactus

Oh my goodness, those blooms are gorgeous @caitbird😍

Re: Christmas Cactus

@itsfi  thank you! 😊

Re: Christmas Cactus

@caitbird  wow!! These are beautiful!! 

Re: Christmas Cactus

@ather  thank you!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@caitbird   Your plants were beautiful last year❤️ I can’t believe mine are blooming so early!  They bloomed in early December last year.  And then by Christmas time they were done.  But, really I am just happy to see those beautiful flowers any time 🥰

Re: Christmas Cactus

@Cissy63  thank you! I agree, it is a treat to see them no matter when they bloom 💜

Re: Christmas Cactus

And here they were on 11/12/22

 

In the same spot on my window sill

 

This window is an Eastern window.  It will get am sun all morning.  And a little southerly afternoon sun, especially in summer 

 

These pictures are from 11/12/22
