The 'mother' plant was all abloom for Hanukkah and now it is all bare except for a few buds meaning it is getting ready for Christmas--never misses a holiday!
In the upper right is a branch I had cut off 2 years ago and it has been blooming all year! On the lower left the photograph is of new 'new' plants I started in September and it is now showing buds for Santa!
In the bottom right are the buds starting to come in getting ready to be in bloom by the 20th.
What was originally a "Christmas Cactus" has now become an all-holiday plant including every 4 years it blooms on February 29th!
Mother Nature always amazes me!!
