Christmas Cactus in November

This is a short post tonight. I have been so excited to see all the blooms on my Christmas Cactus And it's only November


So I thought I'd share it with you.

Almost every "leaf" has a bloom on it. I know the correct name isn't leaf, but don't know what else to call it. Please feel free to tell me if you know what to call them.

  4. I love the little Christmas Cactus plants. They are so easy to take care of and they reward the caretaker with beautiful blooms.

  6. I used to have a Christmas Cactus and just like all my other plants I killed it. Now I've got yours to enjoy without risking it's life.

  7. Your Christmas Cactus is going to be beautiful when it blooms. I have never had any luck with them or any other type of cactus! The word for the 'leaves' is 'Cladodes', which are modified stems.
