A Garden on a Windowsill: Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) Has Bloomed






I showed you the very small Christmas cactus, it has only 4 branches. Bright amazing flowers have bloomed on each branch. Few buds fell down when I inadvertently turned it, it's a pity. 
What a pleasure to see Schlumbergera blossoms before Christmas and New Year.
Do you have a Christmas cactus? Does it always bloom?

  4. So lovely to see Christmas Cactus upclose and personal. These are rarely available in the tropical region in my place. I always wanted to grow something like these but not practical in my zone.
    Merry Christmas!

  14. I had one of these for several years, then all of a sudden it died. I don't know what caused it but I haven't been able to grow one since. I love these blooms. I made a small sketch of the last one I had.

    2. Lisa I do not know what happens with Schlumbergera, many years ago I had one, and it also died.
      This one is still a small flower, but it blooms well.

  19. Many years ago I had one. I loved it and then suddenly I was tired of the brilliant pink, and gave it away. These days my geraniums flower in December if I give them a bit of TLC.

    1. I do love geraniums in bloom, Jenny. It's pretty to have blooming geraniums before Christmas, you care them well. Mine are growing new leaves now, I think they will flower in spring.
