Nice job, rina. Thank goodness we don't have smell-o-vision yet. That Crassula mucosa (I so liked its former name, C. lycopodioides) has some of the smallest, rankest blooms I've ever grown. Have you smelled them?

I noticed buds on a Rhipsalis this morning. When I work nights it allows me to see my plants in the day. Nice for a change.

The Thanksgiving cactus here are not open yet, and I have to go outside and look in to see them. But I did get a pic of the Rhipsalis.

Unfortunately my thanksgiving cactus does not hold the blooms very long...with luck, maybe a week. The dead ones are a sight to behold. LOL Too bad they can't hold their blooms as long as my Orchids which last about 3 months.

Great looking plants.
Have a ?. Do you know the name of your Holiday cactus? and is it by chance a Queen variety. We have a discussion in the House Plant forum on what these can be. under "Is this a True Xmas Cactus"

I didn't even think of smelling the flowers...Maybe that's the reason my kids were wondering about the 'funny smell' - have to check it out - hope the blooms last few more days until my return to check it out.


I have been following that thred too.
Unfortunately, I do not have any ID; this plant was given to me by a friendly neighbour. It is planted in same pot with a crown of thorns (that is getting too tall! - thinking of cutting it but never tried before, so I am not sure).
