Christmas Cactus

My Christmas cactus plants are all blooming. I have them all on my dinning room table so that I can enjoy them.

They add some much needed beauty when the days are shortest and we need cheering up! They all look mighty happy!

They look great! I really like the white variety - just started one from a cutting, so I hope it takes.

Wow! I've never managed to grow cactus...the one time I tried it went mushy on me and rotted...sigh. Yours are beautiful!

'Scuse my jumping in, Mike, but I think you could grow epiphyllum, Raquel. they love heat and humidity...but have managed to survive for me through our dark cold winters up here! Mike has a lot of them and they have amazing blossoms... I'm hoping mine will blossom having spent quality time in the shade porch this summer! Why not give them a try, Raquel? What do you think, Mike?

Mmm...maybe I will try them Lori, when it gets warmer (or when I see them in the garden centers!)...I'm going to look at your pictures Mike and see what they look like...

Lori, did you see the meteor? Just read about it this morning that there was a huge meteor in Canada!

the meteor was on the Alberta/Saskatchewan border so I'm afraid I wasn't close enough, Raquel..
It was large enough that it was seen by many people and it broke apart but they still haven't found any fragments yet... space junk, I'm wondering? lots of scientists out there checking it out... search meteor CBC...you will find lots to read on the subject.
you might try looking on ebay for the epiphyllum.

Thanks Lori. Too bad about the meteor, I saw a video of it on the internet actually. Very interesting.
