A neighbor gve this catcus to my wife a few years ago and it is always so beautiful around this time of the year.

It sat outside on the deck all summer and we brought it in to the Spa room this fall. It seems to love the cooler tempature of the spa room It is probably around 40-50 degrees in there during the winter. But, lots of moisture from the spa.

These blooms popped out last night.

That is the perfect conditions for your Christmas Cactus. Mine is starting to bloom as well, but not nearly as prolificly, as I don’t have a nice cool moist spot like you do. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with Debbie, what a lovely color! It must be very happy where it is, to give you such beautiful blooms.

What a beautiful bloom! Especially welcome at this time of year when we have lost all our outdoor blooms. Mine has just finished it’s first flush of blooms for the winter.
