Good Morning, Barb !!! So glad to see that you were able to get in...we/I missed you a LOT !!!! I hope you are able to get back in again & again.....

So glad your cactus are all in bud....

Good/not so good news on the cactus front here. (The bad news is) Apparently I only have 2 pots of living cactus now a days. I have no idea what color the one in the dining room by my glass sliding doors is, but it has 1 bud.

(The good news) The one in my guest room, that is made up of the pieces that you sent to me, has 4 buds on it !! YAY !!!

IF they either bloom, I will be sure to photograph them for your viewing pleasure.

I had mine in full sun and they did nothing, just stayed the same--I put UV film on the deck doors, to keep out the heat, & some of them died. Then I read that cooler temps & dark a good part of the day would help them bloom...so I tried that.....and here your Mom has it blooming sitting in full sun---which direction is the sun coming from ???

I only have 1 window that faces east that I can put any plants by, but that is the room that is only heated when the kids come home and stay here. I currently have 1 cactus by that window..I had 4 buds on that cactus but only 2 of them bloomed. BUT then the kids were home twice & so the room was heated, and the windows curtains put back down to cover the window for a few days both times.

Thank you for the link Junie. I had no idea this isn't even a real plant. Interesting. And I had no idea they're so easy to propagate. I'm going to prune when my stops blooming and stick the pruned parts in the dirt and see what happens.
