Nigel, I recently moved from Kentucky to North Florida. I had purchased a Christmas cactus
in Kentucky last November. It was full of blooms and buds. About three to four days after I brought it home, the blooms and buds just started falling off. I figured I just did not have the "know how" for the plant
. When we moved here in July, I hung it outside under an oak tree
, pretty much just gave up on it and watered it only when I remembered it was there! Around the early part of November, I was walking around the yard and stopped to look at it. It was just full of buds! I was so excited. It bloomed and bloomed all through November and December. I brought it in when the temps dropped close to freezing, which down here, was probably only a handful of nights. After about the first week of January it stopped blooming. Last week we had some freezing temps and I brought all the plants
inside including it, and saw that it has more buds. For me, I guess ignoring this plant
is the key! Good luck with yours and send us some pics.
Dodge - please post some pics. Mine is pink. I didn't know they came in so many colors. I would love to see yours. You must have several?
