What a pretty woman !
With that out of the way, an old woman that I had the pleasure of helping do some rehab work to make her life a little easier give me a little piece of this plant. I put it into a little coco mixed with some fossil shell flour and fed it a little rain water mixed with the goo from an aloe vera plant for a natural rooting hormone and a little 4 4 4 and it seems to be loving life again. Since it was on its last leg it had no choice. I love cactus flowers of any kind being from the hill country they just seem to have the sweetest smells and colors and I think they attract more species like hummingbirds and butterflies
Just giving credit where it's due sweet p, that was as informative a video that i've ran across.
Thanks really enjoyed ya !
re-potted two months ago. House is 65 all the time. I over love it with light so will wean to 16 hours of darkness once I can mesh that with my schedule. Never over water my house plants but cutting the watering my Xmas plant of water till it weeps flowers for me! Thanks so much. (don't worry, I won't make my plant cry)
Julie, excellent information. I so appreciate this episode on your channel that I found with a random search. I work with Bonsai trees and I was tipped off by another bonsai enthusiast to do a "Christmas Cactus" bonsai. It's a bit of an odd tree for the typical art of bonsai, but some of us have made it work. Now I know how to get mine to have more blooms as I did two years ago (by accident). Great episiode
I am doing everything that you said to do. It’s in my closet were it is dark and cold and I water it not often. I have been doing this since Oct 1st and I don’t see any blooms yet. Am I doing something wrong it is a very old cactus plant maybe 28 years old. I would appreciate any advice thanks so much.
Plese tell me if it's to late to redo. I bought my cactus in November and it was beautiful. Now it's near Christmas and the blooms are gone, also it is in a ceramic type pot with the base attached so I don't know if it has holds in it or not. I did put it in a dark room and watered it when dry. Wwhat can I do to get the flowers back soon. Thanks.
Yes very helpful tips. So put it up for 12-14 hrs a day, then rest of the time does it need bright, indirect light? Medium light or low light? First time ever trying one, but since you mentioned starting this in Sept, I'm way beyond that now obviously so doubt I'll get mine to bloom this year. Bummer. But maybe next year! 🌲🌷🌵
These people moved out and there was pots on top of it so it really look terrible so I brought it home replaying just a little bit didn't know what it really to do but I knew it was a cactus so I kept it dry and I did stick it in the closet for 24 hours because I forgot and I never in my life that thing has blooms everywhere thank you so much
Yeah, you had me confused cause you are talking about a Christmas cactus but holding a Thanksgiving cactus. It’s all good though.😀 continue to make great videos. I have a huge Thanksgiving cactus that just flowered yesterday. It’s full of buds. I have several Christmas cactuses as well.
Hi Julie! I'm really new to your channel. I'm a much older person and have now started getting some plants of various kinds. I have African Violet fertilizer, Orchid Fertilizer and Orchid Bloom Fertilizer. I have some Cal-Mag as well. Are any of these what you would consider a balanced fertilizer (except the bloom one) that I would be able to use when I get a christmas cactus?
First I'd like to start by saying you are a very beautiful young lady and on to the related business thank you so much for the information I was introduced to Christmas cacti by my mother green thumbs run in my family especially my great-grandfather and my mother me on the other hand I have half a green thumb but anyway my mom could always get hers to bloom and I think it was without even trying me on the other hand Miami bloom once and then that's it I no longer have my mother in my life unfortunately she has passed away and I miss her so very much but I have a few Christmas cacti which always remind me of her so this being said I sought out this particular information to help me with achieving my plants to flower. So seeing as how it's spring now I will take this information and come September I will utilize all the information that I have obtained from you and see where it takes me again thank you so very much for this information and I apologize for my ramblings but I have subscribed to your Channel that way I can obtain more information and move forward with it thank you so very much looking forward to Future videos and information
