Default Re: Growing Flowers Indoors...

Beautiful blooms! I think your christmas cactus is actually a thanksgiving cactus (slight difference in the "leaves" and also the blooming time, but I really love the color on them! Mine are still outside and getting some buds on them in the cooler weather and I cant wait for them to bloom (apparently if you leave them outside in a zone 7, they might actually end up blooming around Thanksgiving like they are suppose to!). Last year I had them outside all the way to early december and it saw a freeze. I realized later that it did suffer damage from seeing 30F (about -1C) but Im really amazed that they did survive that kind of cold with only losing a few segments (which all grew back this summer). I dont like geraniums, but thats probably because Ive never seen one as nice as yours! I really like the height and flowers on your geranium. All your plants look great! Enjoying the outdoors indoors!
Thanks for sharing!
