Our Christmas Cactus originates back over 30 years. My mother-in-law has a real beauty. A Christmas about eight years ago one of my sisters-in-law gave each sibling a piece of Mom's plant. Her wish included was that when each of our children got married they in turn would receive a piece of our plant. I have started five plants from ours. Three are for our kids and two are for our new grandbabies.

Our cactus started blooming a couple days before Thanksgiving and will continue to blossom thru Christmas as it does every year without fail. We live in Wisconsin and our plant thrives in an east window with no special care.

I look forward to starting many new plants so that our children and their children will enjoy them as much as I do.
