Christmas Cactus question
Has anyone else found that their Christmas/Holiday cacti have had strange blooming times this year. Mine usually starts setting blooms in October and ends by late February. This year my cactus started its usual blooming in October, but as of today, 4-29-14, it is still going strong. It has never done this. It's hard to see in the picture....it is still producing new little buds that are developing. So strange. I started this plant from one segment 40 years ago (yes, I said 40 years). :-) Even this little guy, in the picture below, that I started from a 1 segment cutting about 18 months ago, has two new little buds developing on it. So, its first blooming is starting at the end of April. Well, this is a first for me. I thought maybe it might have had something to do with the severe winter we've had this year in Md. But, I don't know how that would have anything to do with an indoor cactus blooming time.
EDIT: Hmmm can't figure out how to post more than one picture a post. I will post the picture of the old Granddaddy plant below.
