Schlumbergera w/ raindrops
A recent cactus fiend
I received two cacti for my birthday last month - a pink-flowered Schlumbergera and a grafted Euphorbia lactea crest. I’ve never tried the latter, so it’s a new cactus adventure! Thanks Aurora and Jon!
Happily indoors as the freezing rain starts to arrive!
Oh damn. Never seen a christmas cactus in bloom, and could never figure out why anybody fuckin’ liked them.
Now I see why.
And in person it is so amazing! I just can’t catch it on camera in any light!
When I picked this one up last year on my birthday, I am sure that the blooms were pure white - or is it that the buds fell off and I never saw a mature bloom? - anyway, they have slightest tinge of fuschia. This first bud has been well ahead of the rest since it appeared, so hopefully in a week or so, it will be loaded with blooms.
