I found this Christmas cactus at Walmart for $7. I have never had one and hope that I can keep it alive. My mother has one that belonged to my grandmother, I believe it is about 30 years old. Granny had it for many years and would keep it on her front porch in the summer and move it indoors when it turned cold outside. Mother rescued it after Granny went to heaven and has had it ever since. Mine has loads of fuchsia buds on it and I have read everything I can about the care of it. So far it is doing well. I mist it occasionally and have not watered it yet. So, will try to keep this one alive for many seasons to come. I love it in the house, I am not a green thumb, so a little fresh pop of green is nice to have .
Well, I am going shopping today to buy some extra trimmings for the house. My son will be picking up my trees and ornaments at the old house and bringing them to me today. The plan is to put the tree up tomorrow night. I hope to have the living room decorated by Saturday morning. I will post pictures of the house for you to see the transformation of this bachelor pad to a cheery Christmas home.
Have a wonderful Thursday!
