One has to plan for the future and though I do it all year round I started last year by snapping a few clippings off the mother plant which I had for a couple of decades now. What was usually (and so-called when I bought it) referred to as a Christmas Cactus now seems to bloom all year round but especially at holidays.

And about 12 years ago Leap Year became officially a holiday for the plant as it started to have buds the first week of February and was in full bloom by February 29th!The original plant only had pink blossoms but the past few years there have been white blooms mixed in with them!

I am adding ‘instructions’ as to how to propagate the cactus but I must admit I just snap them off, stick in the dirt in the pot and everything works out fine. Let’s see how the twins do by November 2021!!How to Propagate Christmas Cactus
