So here's my yellow Thanksgiving Cactus that I've had for a while now, blooming right on time. It's early morning so the photo doesn't do it justice =)
Greg, THAT'S BEAUTIFUL!
I have only seen small pieces of it, and to see the whole thing is quite an honor!
Great job pal.
Oh, gorgeous! Dang, we want a yellow one over here so bad. They're fantastic.
Pretty! I have never seen yellow Thanksgiving Cactus.
They are not easy to find here!
Easily one of the nicest yellows I have ever seen in a tc -- would love to have such a one.
I want one!!!! That is just beautiful.
It is just lovely!
I got a yellow one at Walmart several years ago, but it hasn't really grown and it doesn't bloom very much anymore. I'm trying to bring it back. From the looks of the buds on yours, it's going to be a beautiful display.
Thank you for sharing.
Mine is red and in full bloom...does this mean its a thanksgiving cactus too? Do colors define the seasons?
I have some jungle cactus and I really didn't think there was a difference between them.
But I googled and found this article that explains it very well.
Here is a link that might be useful: Holiday cactus
Great show of color, Greg!
Congratulations on your beautiful blooms!
Beautiful Yellow and Red TC Greg and boothbay!!
Here's my Yellow TC...mine's about 3 weeks behind here in FL.
now i want a yellow one!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi Shauntavia...I believe I got my yellow TC from Lowe's a few years ago...also Hirt's sells the yellow one. The key to getting them to bloom yellow is keeping the plant during budstage as close to 68 degrees or warmer...apparently the colder its kept (while budding up) the less (yellow) shade it blooms.
I like the color on yours also...very pretty!
This one was taken last year...
Greg, I can't believe the amount of buds your TC has. Beautiful.
Boothbay. Do you know your TC's name/variety? Definately, not a common TC. It's sooo pretty.
Shaunt...are the blooms lavendar and silver? Very nice.
Pug..WOW! Your TC has the yellowest buds and flowers I'd ever seen. Amazing..
Perhaps there is something to your theory keeping temps around 68F..
If I remember, I'm going to bring my Yellow TC indoors when temps are 70F or so next year. Gorgeous...
Thanks for the info..Toni
You're welcome Toni!! Thanks for the nice comments :o)
I've seen a lot of yellow TCs available this year at both nurseries and HD. The ones posted here are fabulous!
Its more like fuschia pink with silvery streaks
Wow, what beautiful TC you all have. Greg and pug, can you tell me the culivar?
I love how dark yellow they are. Mine is lighter. Very pretty but I sure would like to find a brighter yellow.
Mine was in about 67* budding up so I guess it got as dark as it will.
Do you all get a second bloom from your TC?
