I love the Christmas cactus but try as i may...I have never understood how to keep them healthy and alive. I have read instructions on how to water...
Don't over water, do not allow them to dry out...Place them in well draining soil... Blah, blah, blah,...... I purchased a couple two years ago and as usual they still remain a mystery to care for.
In December of 2011 my white cactus bloomed, the pink one did not.
When I moved to a new apartment the following year I placed them at the window with my other sun loving plants as I did in my last apartment..
That December, neither bloomed.......I assumed it was the change and like the other plants... they needed to get acclimated...
I changed their soil and pots over and over again...Some dried them out to quickly like the clay pots...Others like ceramics, would keep them appearing healthy for a while but then they would stop growing.
This year the only thing I've done differently was to change the pots again!. I purchased two cheap little plastic pots from the dollar store and forgot to place holes in the bottom, however, when I watered them... I allowed them to dry out between watering...and did not bother to punch holes in the bottom because they seem fine..
I than decided this month to place them on the balcony where they receive indirect light... And guess what...They began to bud!
I still can't figure this out...What did I do right/wrong? They are blooming in May??
Do you ever wish there was an official guidebook on how to decorate your home? When is there too much stuff? When is there not enough?
Karen, who goes by The Graphics Fairy on her blog, has it DOWN. I recently had the privilege of spending a few days with her during the #htlucketts event and took advantage of the chance to shoot Karen's home.
Guys, this home is so inspiring. I'd call her style upscale vintage minimalist. She has JUST the right amount of everything, it's productive AND beautiful!
There's more to this tour via the blog link, however here's lots to get you started, loaded with some decor advice.
I only have one question... where's her BAD junk?! :)
