    Wink Christmas Cactus

    Just thought I'd share my Christmas Cactus with you guys. Is it really a form of Cacti? I really hope I don't mess it up and make the buds fall off!



    Great Googly Moogly!

    There is one in my school library. I was flowering and now all the flowers are dead, though it seems a little soon. Congrats on the flowers!

    I just bought it on Saturday, so I'm not responsible for how well it looks, lol. I hope I can keep it up!

    Nice one trapper I'm having trouble with mine though

    Ive had my CC for almost a year now and this month it produced buds, they are still the same size 1 mm in across, its been almost a month I've tried misting it, more light, water tray with pebbles, warmer spot, but nothing has changed still 1mm, the only thing I haven't tried is watering it more. Please help, or is it too late for these buds?

    it is a Schlumbergera hybrid, the parents are epiphyatic cacti from southwestern Brazil.......as are all the christmas and thanksgiving cacti......different species supposedly bloom at different times but while some say day length is the deciding factor to get blooms ive found i can get them to bloom regardless of what the day length is if i put them through a cool period....in an unheated den at my parents house they will bloom from October through April....

    Ugh! It's already happening! I've lost two flower buds so far and the others are looking not so spiffy I suck at keeping these guys alive!

    Try Misting them and putting them on a pebble tray with water. This sometimes works.
