Christmas Cactus

cc1

A single bloom and I am thrilled! Usually my Christmas cactus is full of flowers at this time of the year.

Unfortunately last spring my ten-year-old friend started to die and eventually perished. Luckily I managed to take some cuttings just on time.

Now I have two new cacti growing and doing well.

Now my plan is to find an Easter cactus to accompany them. Just learned a trick to tell them apart. It is the shape of the leaf that tells you when you can expect to see the flowers. Never have realized that before.
