I am a holiday cactus addict! I am so ready to order Easter cactus, but of course, the weather isn't right for shipping! I plan to buy some from Whittons Nursery. Does anyone else know of any good online sellers? Thanks

Hurray! I am going to try trading Thanksgiving cactus Bristol Queen segments! I am looking for yellow or unusual colors! I was checking out eBay today! Bristol Queen cuttings are rare? And going for $13.50 Wow! So if you would like to see a picture let me know!

Julie,

I have been looking for a place to buy Christmas Cactus Samba Brazil and there it is! Whittons Nursery - what a great place! They aren't shipping until March 1 but I have written it my calendar.

Thanks BIG time,

@purplebloomcactus , I am on the hunt for a yellow Easter cactus, but have not found one anywhere. But my search continues. Confused

@daisyl Whittons has great plants. I ordered 6 Christmas cactus from them (2" pots). I was so surprised by the size of the plants and they were blooming when I got them! I ordered a Samba Brazil and the blooms were gorgeous. I will definitely be placing my order for the Easter cactus as soon March 1 arrives! And their prices are great! I know I want EC 'Aberdeen' but not sure what other colors I'll get. Smiling

Get your order in as soon as they start shipping on March 1. I'll be up early that morning placing my order! LOL Hurray!

Yellow is a hard one to find. I was hoping Whttons had something yellow but no luck. Listening to this group, I suspect you will be out of luck by noon. Sad

I have to be up before Julie; she has a 3 hour head start on me.

Actually, he must do hundreds of plants because I was still ordering Christmas cactus from him the third week in December! I'll be ordering about 6 from him, and I already have my wish list ready (unless he adds something)! I'll also be looking at the BBS for them. I don't mind NOIDS. Drooling Hurray!

I have never seen a yellow Easter Cactus. The one I found last year was a buff color as it aged with a bright yellow center.

This one is gorgeous but it seems to only be available in Japan.
