With a low this morning of 14 degrees Fahrenheit, and a projected high of 18F, this is all I’ve got. Three of these little plants grow in my sunny, bathroom window. The one, above, which I call holiday cactus, Schlumbergera sp., starts blooming around Thanksgiving. The coral one, which I call Christmas cactus, will bloom around Christmas and continue for at least three weeks. My new one, a rescue from Wal-Mart, has already bloomed a light pink and white. With a little TLC, I hope to see it in full bloom next Thanksgiving.
I don’t know too much about these plants other than they grow in the forests of South America.
I do know I like them because they are forgiving and easy-peasy, lemon squeezy.
I have one other indoor plant container which I’m saving for the colds of January. I also planted some Amaryllis and Calla lily bulbs, but nothing doing on them yet.
