I got this Christmas Cactus in 1993. It was on a cart at the grocery store. They were going to throw it out because it was in such bad shape.

I actually think it is a Holiday Cactus.



My true Christmas Cactus is also still blooming.

Here is a bloom off of it last year.

I really love the color purple and shape of your other one...
Mom had 4 blooms on her's this [sign in to see URL] she gets two. Dad had small wood dowel rods poked into the pot and had the stalk in [sign in to see URL] it would not fall over.
Then Mom had the smaller plastic pot, sitting in a larger, heavy clay pot, so the whole thing would not tip over...
IT was TOP heavy! emoticon

Re:


The purple one is well over 100 years old. A friend gave me a cutting off of her Cactus a few years ago. It had been her grandmother's and is huge!!!!

I also have a white one. It looks awful, but it bloomed like crazy this year! I don't know if I will get more blooms to get a good picture. There is an almost dead one on it, now.

You mother needs to transplant her's into that larger clay pot! They bloom better in clay pots. They also bloom better with humidity. I will try to get a picture of how I do humidity. It is very simple. I don't know how I thought of it, but it really works! She should also only water once a week and then, just from the bottom. They need to dry completely out.

And here is the setup for it, with humidity. The inside dish is where I water it. The outside dish is humidity, so I don't fill the outside dish so that is spills over into the inside dish or the plant would become too wet.

Re:


Yes! And across the street, behind the house of the man who helped me with my battery charger, there is probably 5 or 10 acres of woods. I am not really sure how far that goes.

OK! Here is a picture! The arrow points to my woods, in my back yard. My house is at the tip of the red arrow, on the left. The sunlit trees are to the right of the arrow, on the other side of the road.

You literally live in a total Nature ecosystem. I love all the wooded area's, then the farms and that big lake with the Marina!
AND heck, if we ever take to the road again, there is a campground danged near across the street... emoticon

Yep! I am way out! It is perfect. Being in this park, with other people, but not too many other people, makes me feel safe and I still get the to be in the country. You can see why I said we have coyote problems. I saw one standing in the middle of the road one day. I wish I had had my camera on me. It was over, across the highway, closer to the lake.

Oh I can see that now! Have you seen deer?
I'm sure skunks and raccoon....
I loved that about living in our first place in MN. It was a World War II satellite tracking station that is the place you have heard me talk about with the underground bomb shelters we used when the tornado sirens went off..

It was sitting in the middle of I want to say 180 [sign in to see URL] was an old munitions factory. The University of Minnesota has bought the whole thing now.

Our mobile was right at the tip of the arrow.
EVERY Building is [sign in to see URL], they should have kept the bomb shelters. They are in tornado alley!

Re:

I see deer along the roads around me. I have only seen one here in the park. However, 5 houses up from me, and all the people along that field, watches them in the field. Once, a long time ago, a deer went up my street and we were out on the street watching her. She ran up the street to that field.

I have seen skunks, raccoons, possums, groundhogs, turkeys, peacocks and more in my back yard.

Good for your mom! It will take awhile to see if there are results. If she has a holiday cactus, rather than a Christmas cactus, it should bloom this spring.

I found out that there are actually fewer true Christmas cacti. Most of them are holiday cacti.

Yeah, I think she has a "holiday" cactus. She's had it since before we got [sign in to see URL] maybe 5 years ago...
I'm not sure those "Christmas" cactus last very long do they?

Re:


The one that I have that is over 100 years old, is a true Christmas cactus. It is the purply one. It grows and blooms like crazy. It is my only experience with a Christmas Cactus. One of my Holiday cacti grows like crazy and blooms like crazy, the other one seems to always be at the edge of death. However, it blooms. I fear that I am not doing my wonderful Holiday cactus much good because I don't want to pot it in a bigger pot and so I fear it will get root bound. Maybe I will move up one pot size. I think that would still fit on the window sill.

Christmas Cactus, Thanksgiving Cactus and Easter Cactus.

As I understand it these all use the general term "Holiday Cactus."

quote:



Thanksgiving cacti are often sold as “Christmas cacti” and these two holiday plants look very similar. Both fall under the genus Schlumbergera, have the same color scheme and require the same care. There are two main differences between a Christmas and Thanksgiving cactus: the flowering season, which we have already discussed, and the segments of the leaves. To help determine whether your cactus is a Christmas or Thanksgiving variety, will depend on the edges of the leaf segments. Christmas cacti have smooth, round edges while Thanksgiving cacti have pointy, jagged ones. A Thanksgiving cactus is shown at the top of this article; a Christmas cactus is shown at right. Note the difference in the leaves.



Susa, you must be giving your cactus plants lots of TLC to get such big beautiful blooms.

I once had this Christmas Cactus for years, the cat made a bed in the pot and bent the main stem then while I was in rehab it died from lack of watering.

My Christmas cactus has the rounded leaves and only blooms at Christmas.

My other two bloom at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.
