Christmas Cactus, Sometimes

My HalloThanksChristKing Cactus
I've written before about my Christmas cactus and thought I mention it again.  I bought it 6 or 7 years ago at Christmas time and it was in full fuschia-colored bloom, it looked glorious.  But unfortunately it's not a reliable Christmas cactus.  Some years it blooms as early as Halloween and some years as late as Martin Luther King Day in January.  This year it has decided to bloom between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it is beautiful, hope the blooms hold on till Christmas.  The one in the laundry room, a white one, is also a little calendar challenged!

  1. It is so magical when they bloom at Christmas, right on schedule. Then again I would welcome their bloom on any given day.

    Thanks for posting


  2. I've never had a Christmas cactus, yours is gorgeous.

  3. I've just been given a tiny cutting from a Christmas cactus. Yours look beautiful. Mine still has a long way to go!

  4. I don't know how many Christmas cacti I've killed over the years. I do not have a green thumb. So the fact that yours are alive after that long is wonderful to me. And what a bonus to have them bloom on time.


I can't let this Halloween go by without a Janet inspired painting of Godzilla trick or treating Tokyo. I am leaving shortly for...
