FOTD – April 16 – Out-Of-Season Cactus Bloom

Is it a Christmas cactus? A Thanksgiving cactus? How about an Easter cactus? Because this one is blooming just in time for Easter. It’s not a major bloom. Just one big bud but still, way out of season.

It’s not the first time a Christmas Cactus has decided to bloom in spring or summer. It’s good news for me because this cactus has been asleep since I re-potted it more than a year ago. It’s healthy. Huge. Lots of green growth. Just no flowers. So this bloom means all is well. I’m sure, as winter comes, more blossoms will follow.

  1. Awesome that it bloomed! An easter miracle! ❤


    • A miracle indeed 😀 At last, proof -this cactus will bloom again. When you re-pot these cactus, they fall apart. It can take a really long time until they are finally sturdy enough to flower. This has taken more than a year. It put on lots of green growth, but this is it’s first flower. I guess it survived. Yay! For half a year it look close to dead. Patience, patience.
