MY CHRISTMAS/LEAP YEAR/EASTER CACTUS   1 comment

Blooming cactus

I have the craziest Christmas/Easter/ Leap Year cactus!! I don’t remember when I first bought the Christmas cactus plant but probably 7-8 years ago. It was already in bloom when I bought it that Christmas but stopped blooming after the buds dropped. It didn’t bloom the following Christmas and then all of a sudden there were blooms around Easter. Once again it didn’t bloom at Christmas time but all of a sudden 2012 it started to bloom around my Leap Year birthday!

The last 6 years it seems to bloom around Christmas, the end of February and the week before Easter, whatever date it might be.

At first the blooms were all pink and then all a sudden they were a mixture of pink and white. I did cut off a few branches and before I knew it I had 5 pots of cacti plus the big mother plant, which is in the collage above.

For the first time last year the mother plant started to bloom 2 weeks before Christmas, both white and pink blooms, and one by one each of the other 5 potted plants started to bloom, some white and some pink. Since then all the plants have remained in bloom and now a week before my 20th Leap Year birthday February 29 there were buds on all the plants!

Now during the period of November-February 2016-2017 they have been blooming constantly

The blooms are very pretty but I don’t detect any aroma.

  1. Undeniably imagine that that you stated. Your
    favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people think about concerns that they just don’t know about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing
    with no need side effect , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you http://fertileaxle1409.snack.ws/how-to-get-the-most-from-your-ipad.html
