Right On Schedule



Just when things start to look pretty dreary outside and old friend decided to brighten things up a bit.
 

The Christmas Cactus are blooming. And just in time for the Christmas season.

    1. They sit in a south window all year. Around the middle of October I close the shades, slow down the water and then Thanksgiving I open the shades back up. That little bit of darkness for a couple weeks triggers them to bloom.

    3. I like to use a fish emulsion fertilizer in the spring when I can open the windows because boy does it stink! The plants love it though just not too much : )

    1. It is really more of a coral color but it is pretty. I also have a small white one that seems to bloom slower than the others. Maybe Easter
