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!!!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@caitbird  oh I see the post from the one at your work!  Itโ€™s a beautiful plant!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@Cissy63 I am lucky to keep house plants alive for a year.  

Re: Christmas Cactus

@CorgiMommy  I understand!  Sometimes mine have been sorrowful ๐Ÿ˜ข.  

Re: Christmas Cactus

This little one gets neglected frequently and is watered maybe once a month when I walk by and notice the soil looks like my dry skin after a long day. Last night I was passing by and noticed a pink reflection on the window. Turns out it was quiet happy being neglected and decided to bloom!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@JoSometimes  Yay!!! I think neglecting it is better than over watering it. I had one and I must have watered it and my husband watered it and it got root rot. I have a new one thatโ€™s full of blooms! 

Re: Christmas Cactus

@ather This one died. I havenโ€™t replaced it though. Maybe next month if I can find a nice one. 

Re: Christmas Cactus

Our Christmas cactus did not bloom this year sadly, but here is one from work!

Re: Christmas Cactus

@caitbird  I love when they bloom! So pretty! 

Re: Christmas Cactus

I like how it looks. Maybe buy such a cactus?

Re: Christmas Cactus

I don't get to Trader Joe's as often these days and am rarely in the outdoor section when I am but I moseyed that way one night after work and saw the "Christmas cactus" sign. I ended up going back another day and picking one up. Here's hoping I can care for it well enough like folks here have cared for theirs on this thread. ๐Ÿคž @Cissy63

They came in a foil wrapping that covered the base. This plantar is from an aloe plant that did not survive my care - in my defense, it held on for a year or so before calling it quits. ๐Ÿ˜” This is sitting on the steps where there's a skylight up above. Let's see if it likes this spot.

Re: Christmas Cactus

@itsfi  Itโ€™s beautiful! And it has 2 beautiful red blooms.  Congratulations ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŒต

Re: Christmas Cactus

I have been remiss at showing updates on my plants.
