I have one that was my husband's grandmother's. It's really old and doing great but no flowers yet.

I've started stopped calling mine a "Christmas" cactus because over the years it has changed to blooming whenever it likes although it frequently blooms near a holiday such as Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving. I especially like when it blooms after Christmas during the winter months as it gives such a lovely display of color in the dull months.

Just beautiful Nan!


I know how you feel about stores rushing the season. Tomorrow there will be New Year's Eve decorations out for sale in the stores.
