Almost three years ago for my birthday Bob got me a Christmas cactus. He knew I felt bad about leaving behind the cactus I had in MN. It had been my grandmothers and was very old, at least 40 years. I have repotted my new one twice now and had it outside in a shady spot all summer. It LOVED it’s new pot and has really thrived. It started blooming a couple weeks ago. It is almost two feet across and is just gorgeous. It doesn’t even look real and is still loaded with more buds still to bloom. Hope you enjoy it.
