It is a little early, but my Christmas Cacti are starting to do their thing. They are doing it by leaps and bounds it seems, so much so that I am thinking these may be Thanksgiving Cacti this year( I do amuse me )So I guess for the next few weeks its going to be a Zygocactus-fest around here!!
The guy up above is the one I have had the longest. I bought it about 5-6 years ago at a garden Center that no longer exists. This big beauty was a scrawny mess tucked away in the discount area....my luck, it not only flourished , but the following season a variegated Spider Plant popped up in the pot along with it!! This one is just starting to set some nice buds.
This beauty I have had for a few years. It is catching up in size to my big older buddy, and it has set the ,most buds the quickest this season. I dont think this one is even going to wait for thanksgiving to bloom!!
This is my new little guy. I found a leaf sitting on the plant table at a department store last winter, so I rescued it and hoped for the best with rooting. Well I am so pleased that he is doing so well in his tiny 4 inch home. I cannot wait to see if he will bloom this year, and if it does, what color it will be.
So keep checking back for updates on their progress!! :)
