I began rooting these broken fragments last summer hoping for enough growth by Christmas to pot them properly for my daughter as a gift. There was, and I did. Many moons ago, my mother gave me a Christmas Cactus that blooms annually on cue without fail. Oddly, it did not this year and I suspect this was my mother telling me the plant needs tending to…new soil and a bit of propagating which I will get to in the spring.
And now my daughter will grow the gift of Christmas blooms in her home, given with love spanning two generations.
