Stuff around the house #8: Christmas Cactus

I don't know why this plant is blooming - I wouldn't know how to make it bloom if I tried. Patti Anne might know, but I sure don't.

Anyway, we brought this guy in when the weather started getting cooler, and put him on a stand on top of our microwave in the corner of the kitchen. It started blooming and it's blooming like crazy.

We (and by we I mean Patti Anne) havent done anything to the plant except water it, and turn it occasionally.

I mostly look at it and wonder how this can be. I don't know how long it will continue to bloom, but it sure its pretty while it lasts.

I think it thrives on the high humidity and low light in its corner. Nice pic!

Very pretty. I love Christmas cactuses.

eBay NC Gal: Hmm, & I thought it was more light & drier.

Dori: Thanks. One that I've had any kind of custody over has never bloomed before, so this is neat.

Mine's blooming, too. I don't argue.

Ours is blooming as well. Similar sort of situation.

SHG & orient-lodge: Thanks for your comments. I agree, no reason to wonder why, it just is. I should make my peace and accept it.
