I ran into Fred Meyer's to look for a gravy mix for Christmas. . . to go with my roast. Paid for it and was walking out with the roast from Butcher Block and the gravy mix. THEN, I saw it!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been looking for a starter Christmas cactus ever since a room mate this summer dumped my plant stand and broke the one I had growing from Myrl's plant. I was just sick about it as it had taken me 4 years to get that big.
This cactus was already blooming even tho it was small! I hope I can take good care of it so that it can grow like Myrl's very old plant or like Sami's. . .
I also saw another plant there that was unusual and I had to investigate. It had white flowers blooming already. It is called White Star. Of course I had to have that too! I splurged and bought me them for Christmas.
When I got home, I repotted the Christmas cactus because I had a little bit of potting soil and some new pots I had bought earlier in the year. There wasn't enough to repot the other one but that is okay because it is a bulb and dies in about three months and re-grows again in the spring, or so the card says.I just put the pot and all in another new flower pot for that one temporarily.
I am sure going to enjoy these plants. . .
