BACK COMES THE CACTUS – Marilyn Armstrong


I thought there might be another blooming of the Christmas cactus. Why? It just looks so incredibly healthy and it’s been putting up new shoots like crazy. I wasn’t paying much attention to it, probably because of the birds. But I was noticing that the orchid has sent up a new shoot and when I looked, I realized that cactus if full of buds.

So … I took a few pictures. I think we’ll have actual flowers next week or even the middle of the week. That was a really fast turnaround, fastest ever for me.

  1. They must really like the cooler weather! I’ve had a plant that had nearly 30 flowers in one bloom in our coldest months Jun-Jul but as far as i can remember i’ve never had 2 blooms in one year!
    It’s funny because i associate cacti with heat?

  2. That’s one happy camper of a cactus, Marilyn.
    I think mine must be pot bound. It had a few flowers but not much to rave about.
    As for the orchids, I now have three plants and only one is flowering.
