Preparing For The Big Show

This is my grandmother's Christmas cactus.  I wrote about its history once before.

It is looking very healthy in the living room.


It is loaded with tiny buds promising beautiful blooms.

  5. Neither of mine had blooms or buds this year -- well, I think EACH had a bloom or two early -- like around Thanksgiving . . . and last year they were both magnificent! I can't wait to see pics of them totally in bloom!

  10. We need pictures once it blooms! I have found that the trickiest part is coaxing them along once they set bud; many times, I lose the buds due to sudden fluctations in temperature or moisture. This is a wonderful plant and may it bring you years of joy.
