FOTD – March 27 – Cactus flowers in early spring

My Christmas cactus has given up any relationship to winter holidays and seems to have decided to flower all the time. A flower blooms, a new bud forms. The flower dies? Wait, here’s a new flower. This unhurried approach to flowering is very untypical for a cactus. Typically — usually — they make a lot of buds and voila, you have a blaze of flowers. Then they are gone until next year.

Not with this cactus. This cactus has been flowering since late January. One flower at a time.

Three days from big bud to full bloom — and yes, there’s another on the way.
