A dear friend bought me a Christmas Cactus last December for my birthday as well as a housewarming gift since we just moved into our house. Of course it was in full bloom and absolutely beautiful.
I took care of it all year long and was expecting to have to do some work in getting to bloom again. Checking online I thought I would have to place in a dark room for 12 hours and bring out to a bright window for the other 12 hours.
Well a few weeks ago, I noticed I started getting some buds and I was glad it did this all on its own, in my kitchen window! That is one smart plant. Funny how nature with its light limited evenings takes care of things all on its own.
Actually I didn’t expect to get any blooms again, as I don’t have that green of thumb on indoor plants as I do for my outdoor ones. This plant reminds me of my late Mom, as she always had this plant and it ALWAYS bloomed for her!
