|The wonderful magenta bloom|
|You can see the buds that have formed.|
I used to put the plant outside for the summer until one year I forgot it and left it out until November! Many of the leaves were frosted but the plant survived.
When the plant gets too big for its place in the sunroom, I take cuttings and start a new plant. The existing plant is probably the 3rd or 4th cutting generation from the original plant. I think of the Christmas Cactus as a bit of my Grandmother that lives on.
