Enjoyed the article, Tee. I was reminded of the ancient Christmas Cactus in my grandmother's kitchen. She had gotten it from her mother and gave it to her daughter who, in turn, gave it to my sister. I've taken to moving my own CCs outdoors in the fall. I leave them out until frost threatens. By that time, buds have already formed. They go to their accustomed places on kitchen windowsills where we can enjoy the show while we cook and eat.

Thank you, Larry. Sherry made it easy for me. Finding a method that works for you is the hard part. It sounds like you've succeeded at that. Your plants take advantage of the natural daily length of darkness and light. That's great!
