Plants – Thanksgiving Cactus

IMG_8567

My Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera) is beginning to bloom right on time.

Blossoms and buds cover the tips of the cactus. I summered this plant outdoors on the porch until early Autumn when I brought it indoors. Placed in a window of my cool basement, I kept the plant fairly dry, watering lightly. The cactus is upstairs now showing off its beautiful flowers.

There are plenty of buds in varying sizes, a promise of blooms through Thanksgiving Day.

I found a terrific site with good information on identifying Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus and how to grow and bring them into bloom: Caring for Holiday Cactus
