GTS: Christmas Cactus

Green Thumb Sunday

Join Green Thumb Sunday

The garden looks sad, but inside, this is all different. When I came back home yesterday, this is what I found:

I have had this one for ages. It spends the summer outside, it happens that it is pruned by the wind, sometimes very strongly pruned, but it keeps growing and growing. I thought I had found the right container size this year, but it has alreay outgrown it... Anyway, I like the touch of color it brings.

Happy GTS to all!

These are great plants, you abuse them and they do better than a pampered one.

The flowers are so bright and pretty when all outside is gray and white!
The cards and crafts in your latest post are just beautiful!! So clever!

I never had any luck with Christmas Cactus, so I quit buying it. Yours looks pretty good!
The cards and crafts are also lovely. So talented!
Happy GTS,

Was ich auch sehr faszinierend finde, ist die Ähnlichkeit mit dem Osterkaktus. Ist es nicht prima, daß sie immer genau wissen, wann sie blühen sollen?
Ich würde Dich gerne bei mir verlinken, wenn Du nichts dagegen hast? Lieber Gruß vom Wurzerl

I love X=Mas Cactus!!! Mine is white, and covered with buds...about to open any day. I will post a pic when they do! Yours are a really pretty shade of pink/purple/fushia.
