Christmas Cactus

After many years of being either too early or too late, all three of my Christmas Cacti are blooming for Christmas. A tidbit I find interesting is that all of my cacti came from Karen Lyman, either cuttings she started for me or by way of the Storheims who left me theirs (which also came from Karen.) BTW, the only other plant I have in my house is a rubber tree plant that is Darren's . I can only tolerate/care for plants that require neglect!

Didn't know you had three! Well this one looks amazing. Perhaps a cactus is the way I should go.

Deborah, I'm impressed! This is a beautiful cactus, I didn't know there was a cactus for Christmas. I'm proud of you lady! I kill everything...that is unless my cat gets to it first.

hmmm maybe I should send mine to you(Karen gave me mine too when we moved in). Mine bloomed in Oct.

OH, and this post totally counts as your "missionary" effort for this month because the nativity scene is in it. Way to go Deborah!

That last comment really made me laugh! Good one!

Just for you, I'm leaving my first comment ever. The cactus is beautiful. I can't wait to see it up close. Have a very Merry Christmas!

I love those, but I bet I could kill it.
