Back in the early fall, Miss Winnie brought me cuttings from her Sister Trudy's Christmas Cactuses. One Easter Cactus and five of the Christmas kind. The scarlet one bloomed first, similar if not identical to the only Christmas Cactus I had.
My original Schlumbergera, bought at a bargain after Christmas one year.
Second to bloom was the white, a stunner. It's fuller now
since more buds opened while we had a warm spell.
Love the pink!
There's a yellow that is going to be fully open
ahead of the pink.
The slowest to open is still with tight buds that
i expect to be that pretty peach color unless it
surprises me and turns out lavender.
It will be splendid either way.
We are about to have cold again, perhaps down to 34 degrees F. tonight.
I set the heaters in place. Maybe tomorrow I'll bring this Amaryllis into
the house where it can speed up opening where the temperatures are steady.
Jungle Cacti lend themselves to creative plantings.
I'm linking to Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time. Join us there to see what's blooming.
