Hubby and I aren’t the only ones in our house preparing for Christmas — so is our Christmas Cactus! Plants outside in the snow may be dormant, but CC knows it’s his time to shine!
Our Christmas Cactus lives in a canister in a north-facing window in our kitchen. Because I’m not very “in tune” with plants, and also forgetful, he literally gets a drink about once a month. But he continues to survive, and a couple times a year put on a little show. Now because he isn’t babied, he doesn’t do many, many blooms. The most I’ve every seen on him is six. But, he does bloom, and I’m always excited about that, especially at Christmas time.
Do you see the “buds” on two of the leaves (it occurs to me that those are surely not called leaves, but I have no idea what they are called) at the lower right?
Only those of you who are also not good with plants will truly understand how much I enjoy it when this cactus blooms. We just don’t see many blooms in this house. So, whatever our little cactus gives us, will be appreciated and enjoyed!
