We were at my parents this past weekend for the holidays and as usual my mom’s plants are in full bloom (the ones in season of course). Her plants are the all blooming. Needless to say we had a very rainy and gray Christmas Eve, but nothing a little Christmas cactus can’t brighten up.
The Christmas cactus is a beautiful plant that is pretty low maintenance and adds a ton of color. My mom keeps her Christmas cactus outdoors all year except when it begins blooming around Thanksgiving. These are also great plants for dividing and sharing. If you don’t have one you can still run out and get them.
