Hello from Ten Gables Cottage,
I have been busy all day taking down Christmas decorations and trying to clean a bit as I go. I stopped by the back porch to admire the light coral colored Christmas Cactus that has finally started to bloom. It is only 2 years old, but is getting pretty big and I think it really will need to be repotted after it finishes blooming.
The white one that started blooming in November now has turned pink and the cactus part has turned red! Surprise! Is this common? It is full of bloom and they all hang down from the pot, as you can see in the photograph.
I hope some of you gardeners can tell me about Christmas cactus, as I just got tiny plants last Christmas and put in a little bigger pots and mainly ignored them during the summer, watering only occasionally. I was at a lady's home this summer and she had a huge one in her den that she keeps inside. I just left mine outside all year around. I did cover them during our cold spell. Your comments are appreciated!
