Wordless Wednesday–Columbus Day Cactus?


These succulent plants bloom in relation to day light, day length and temperature.  That’s why it’s a bit of a misnomer to call them “Christmas ” cacti.

This one seems to have gotten started a bit early  this year!

    Yes, my ‘Christmas’ cactus has flowered three times already this year. Nineteen years old & still going strong!

    Three times! That’s amazing! I have one next to this one that has just begun flowering. It’s probably 25 years old–but I usually only get one blooming a year, or perhaps a second small bloom if I am lucky. How wonderful for you.
