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?

Oh, sorry. My bad. I usually view anyone on this forum as "genderless" unless I see a post with "my husband, or wife". I'm sorry, and I really hope you are not offended. I have been mistaken for a man before because "Linny" can be a man or woman. Let me correct that right away.

Okay you just find that peach and yellow one missy....

you know the rest...

Please forgive me. I have enjoyed communicating with you and would love to continue.

Thanks penny......

Hope all my plants do that this year.

We had lots of snow melted today.. About 47 and sunny ......I live on a hill and the water runs off like a creek.
Maybe in 2 more days I will see bulbs.
