Schlumbergera

13 comments


Most of my Schlumbergera are in flower now, a few weeks later than they usually are. They are so reliable and take no looking after.
Orange…

White…

Pink…


My favourite is the orange one. It’s not as big a plant as the pink one but I think the colour and size of the flowers makes up for that. :o)

They are all very nice. You've done well to get them all flowering.

Do you cut yours back after flowering

The white one is beautiful.

I don't do anything to them apart from a drop of water and the occasional feed. They just seem to get on with it..lol I have been nursing my daughters cacti all summer and although it looks healthier it has no sign of flower buds. Its only ever had 2 flowers on it since she bought it 4 years ago!!

Load of flowers on yours, HB. I neglect mine, and they respond badly.

They're beautiful. So many buds and flowers :)
I am not very good with them but that may be because they are outside.

Thankyou for all your lovely comments. I put mine out only at the height of summer for a few weeks. They must like it in the conservatory. I have given loads of cuttings away from bits that have dropped off occasionally.

One year when I put mine out the snails had a go at them. But they preferred the Aloe vera - scoffed t least half of it!

Wonderful colour varieties you have there I to love the white one not often you see white.

Yours are way ahead of mine, little buds just forming here, I agree they do thrive on neglect, I often feel guilty when giving mine a drink and try to remember how long they have had to wait for my attention, I have pink which is donkeys years old , used to belong to my mum, red and white, never seen an orange one though....
