We have 2 Christmas cactus plants. One… the large one… I bought at a church sale back when I was 8years old. I paid a quarter for it, and brought it home in a Styrofoam cup. at 45+years old…. it has had it’s ups and downs. When mom moved in with us over a year ago, I thought it was mostly dead. She hadn’t been caring for it… and it showed. But today… it is healthy, happy… and blooming.
