When the CCF "leaves" get all desiccated and wrinkly, it is hard to tell if it is because they need more
watering--or less. I have never seen a wrinkled up leaf recover. Whatever the cause was.
However--usually it starts in the roots or the base of the stems--like a rot or fungus and then the leaves die.
The pictures below show what (maybe?) older-stems look like. Some of the leaves are limp.
I keep watering them when they are bone dry--and I think it helps. If I let them go very dry,
I don't think they are too happy. Have to play it by ear......
1--This is a white Easter Cactus. See! This does not look good! Like--it gets 'woody'---maybe needs fresh soil?
2--A closer look at the base of this Easter Cactus.
3--This is my true Christmas Cactus--giving me one bloom at a time. Doing OK though.
4--Divided one of my huge Clivias last week. The one on the left. NOT the pot on the right. That is a different one.
The one I divided is the pretty one--with the rounded leaf-tips & intense orange blooms.
Got 3 big, newly potted sections from the pot-bound one. (douplicate photo--sorry!)
5--And two smaller divisions as well. These are promised as is one of the bigger ones.
I am keeping the other two.
Dividing a Clivia is hard--they have these fat, white roots--like a big, white Mop.
Re-potting has to be careful so as not to break too many of the roots off yet leave
them spread out.
