CHRISTMAS CACTUS BLOOMING

It’s the right time of year. The dark red one bloomed last month and the dark pink (or is it light red?) one is gorgeous right now. I notice the dark red one has new buds and I think they’ll be open by the end of the week.

  1. Are looking great. I must be doing something wrong. Have had 2-3 flowers and as many buds that have dropped off. It can only get better, I hope.

    • They need a natural cycle of light and dark … a window in a room you rarely use works. We hardly use the dining room anymore, so their primary light is from the French doors. Water them ONLY when they are really dry. If you have the right light and leave them alone, they bloom. If you don’t have the right light, they won’t do well.

      It’s like me with poinsettias and orchids. They NEVER bloom for me and usually up and die pretty fast. I don’t have the right light.

      I have learned over the years to not fight nature. I grow what does well where I live. We don’t get much sun, so anything that needs more than a little sun does poorly here. But shade loving plants do great, so that’s what I grow.
