|Tee you answered all questions I have had over the years about the Schlumbergera (holiday cactus). I always wondered why they had different shaped leaves and it took me forever to learn how to get them to bloom. |
Thank you for such an informative article.

|Thank you Tee for answering all my questions too. I was wondering about watering them during the longer night days before bloom. |
Thank you for an informative article and the book title too.
I just might get them to bloom for me now I've learnt how to root them and keep them alive.

|Good information! I've had mine bloom unexpectedly with no special preparation, and left outside to the elements. They're tough little plants.|

|Thanks, Vic, Mindy, Sandi and Lynn, for reading and commenting. The Schlumbergera thread over there in Houseplants is very informative too. And I always find it interesting how someone got started with their favorite plant. |
