BETWEEN ONE DAY AND THE NEXT – Marilyn Armstrong

New Blooms – Christmas Cactus  12/3/18


Yesterday, there was one flower — beginning to look a bit weary around the edges and a lot of fat buds. Today the first flower is moving on, but three new ones are popping open.

I am sad that I can’t manage to keep a Poinsettia alive, but the Christmas Cactus makes up for it and the smaller one is just beginning to look as if it is thinking about setting buds. Funny that two essentially identical cactuses — they were both cuttings from the same friend — have such different blooming patterns.

Almost in bloom. Some of the petals are open

  3. I have my Poinsettia from last Christmas, I keep it in the kitchen where there is a lot of light but has grown taller rather than bushier so I may get another for the Christmas table.

  5. Hopefully both plants will be in bloom for Christmas/Hannukah? 😉

    I have no idea how plants set their flowering times either – defies (my) logic. 🙂

    I’m pretty sure though the weird weather does NOT help.
