    My X-mas cactus that I bought maybe two years ago decided to flower a little early this year, prolly cause it was outside in 50 degree weather.

    Flower induction is caused by lots of factors in the Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus. Day length mostly but a good and thourogh dry spell will speed things up too. Congrats, they look nice !

    ive found temps have more to do with them than anything. the ones at my moms house out in her unheated den are generally blooming from now sometimes through May during a year with a cool spring. Halloween through the first of April is normal though.

    Cool

    I have a christmas cactus that my grandmother gave me almost thirty years ago. it never bloomed for me until the year she died. it had hundreds of blooms that year, and hasn't bloomed since. her way of telling me she was alright i guess. i love you grandma

    Awwww. I'm really sorry of your loss, but it's a really good story that you can tell your children.

    i just lost my great grandmother on sunday. i had the honor of being her pall-bearer. she was very close to my family. she had the humor to give us a cup with soil and a mystery seed. turned out that the seed was a dandelion with the fluff cut off. it made us all laugh. im sorry to hear about your loss.
