It's Thanksgiving Cactus time! Are yours budding in time?

meyermike_1micha(5)November 2, 2013

How are your T.C's doing? What colors do you have?
Can you share what you have with us in time for Thanksgiving?

All of them are potted in a mix that consists of Fir Bark, Perlite and Pumice...

Please, bring them on!

This one is a variegated rooted cutting...

These are Yellow, Deep Orange, White, Aspen, Doubled bloom, and a rare one I can't name until it blooms..

These ones are special ones! Believe it or not, but I started this these out as 6..3segment cuttings in each pot from a friend of mine that passed away this past spring and they grew out of control with constant fertilizing!

All these next ones are cuttings I started a couple of months ago...So far so good!

My TC got a bit too much sun exposure over the summer months (purple coloring), but it looks like it will still do fine with it's blooms. They just started opening today so more should be taking place shortly!

Just brought them in from the back porch. The red one darkened up quite a bit. The white got dark greener. Even the broken branches (from the white) got buds on them. 2nd. year in a row for them. Some one sent them to my wife as a gift (unknown). She gave me the credit for it.

Wow - mine looks pretty puny by comparison! Lovely TC's everyone! I repotted last June to get it out of rock hard peat and into a bark based soil, so I am happy to see anything other than dessicated leaves.

Thanks for sharing, everyone!

Yep! The white one is already opening up:

and the red (on left) and purple (on right) are getting ready to:

I've had the white one for 4 years, and the red/purple one for 2. They both skipped last year, so I'm happy both budded up this year!

Not sure what variety this one is. It was started from a cutting last January. Not many buds, but the flowers are HUGE. Thor maybe?

Love those white ones. Mine can not wait for thanksgiving. I got it as a cutting last year. Color is darker than Laura's yellow one but lighter than salmon. It bloomed for me in the summer when it was outside too. The color of the summer bloom is more washed transparent salmon.

That pale peach is just gorgeous! I had a salmon colored one, but it came down with some affliction that I just couldn't beat a few months ago. After 10 years, the poor thing just slowly died off.

I still have a pink one, and I just noticed the faintest start of buds on it... this is the first time in years that this one is producing flowers! It wasn't getting the light and temp changes where I kept it previously. I moved, and it lives in a west-facing window now, and I seem to have hit the jackpot! The same plant also put out a few flowers around Easter in this new spot, but I see buds almost all branches now.

Um...I don't even know where to begin on the colors recently posted!

I am loving the Yellow and unique Orang Red colors! Wow!
Just in time for the Hoilday's I would say...Amazing!
I have 3 YELLOW plants and all have are not even close to yellow this time around. More of a peachy color:-(..I guess I should of provided more heat than I did recently..Shucks!

Yay for all of you just getting the flowers to open and for making them get to this point..I remember a time I couldn't even get one plant to flower let alone hold on to their bud when I bought them

Nancy!!!!
You see??
Now, imagine if your weather turned cold like ours...?
You would get your jades to color up, but forget such a dramatic Yellow on yours for they only look like that if kepted very warm..Terrific and what a great shot!!!

Greendale..Picture perfect, justy like what I would see in a magazine..Beautiful!

Very NICE TC Laura, SenJen, and Purple!! Love the animation too, very cool!! Just as Nancy say's..I am 100 percent taken back by all these colors too..How come we never see them look like this in a store?
It is always the usual colors we see that we pass up..lol

Paul..Thanks pal..

Purple..Too funny! Thanks...

It's a very DARK and gloomy day today here..Should be great for setting buds, and that is about it..Well for, for watching a good movie or football too...

Great work everyone.

I bought this one last year on clearance and thought it was white because of the dried blooms. However, it surprised me with this beautiful white edged in hot pink. I love it!

And since I still wanted a white one, I bought this little one at Walmart for $2.92.

I have two more Thanksgiving Cactus that are budding. The most surprising thing is that my Christmas Cactus has blooms that are just opening.

"my first bloom that counts... since it budded and bloomed at home" I felt the same way about the 2 plants I just bought vs. the ones I've had, waiting, watching, for so long.

Looking forward to seeing some that beautiful deep raspberry color, thanks again for that!!

These pics are all so awesome!

J, your pic at (Dec 2, 13 at 15:23) looks like you were laying on the floor when you took it. Don't bother to deny, anyone else would do the same if it was the best shot. LOL!!

TC's are self-sterile. This, of course, was the most interesting report on that.) So this snippet from Wiki is interesting:
"The flowers of Schlumbergera have adaptations for pollination by hummingbirds: tubular flowers with abundant nectar, and colours towards the red end of the spectrum. Most species require cross-pollination to set seed. The exceptions are S. kautskyi and S. microsphaerica; as noted above, the latter is found at higher altitudes where humming birds may be absent or less common."

No kiddin'!? Fascinating! This is another plant to add to my hummingbird list (#106!,) and I should make the effort to put these outside during the daytime.

Mike - Last year all of the whites at the Walmart near me had a touch of pink. My house is always above 70 degrees so I will not be able to find out how it behaves in colder temps. I called the grower and he said the variety name was "Sicily" and that they were from Vietnam. The others he named were in the Thor new generation series, but when I asked he said it was not Livia and said Sicily again. I cannot find any information about this variety on the web. If it grows well, I will try to send you some cuttings in the spring/summer so you can test it out.

I have a schlum cutting... That hasn't done anything in months. It's rooted and all, but its floppy and doesnt look very happy and certainly hasn't grown any. I suspect it just doesn't like my climate. I'm letting it fend for itself for the most part.

Hello! I am new here, but I also love these lovelies. In Latvian shops unfortunately we don't have labelled Schlums. They are sold as "Christmas cactus" and the shop assistant looks at you weird if you call it "Thanksgiving cactus". I guess it's because we don't celebrate Thanksgiving and not everyone has given a thought about schlums. Today I asked if they know names for schlums they are selling. The answer was no, there isn't any label to see where it has come from so my cacti are NOID, but I have tried to ID some by looking at photos. Today I think I bought "Samba Brazil" *squeals*, I will post photos tomorrow. Today I want to post photos of two I have no idea what they are called.
Since files were huge I put links.
Perhaps you could play ID for me please? Maybe there is someone who can ID them just looking at photos *looking around hopefully*

Hi Lii-sama! You have a really nice collection! That one does look like Samba, or it could be Frances Rolleson-- I know they sell that in Europe too and it los identical, but is smaller and much easier to propagate (wish we had it!). I am not sure on the others. )

Julianna, thank you for the compliment. It's just a small part of the whole collection because few are blooming for the second time and this year I got 4 new ones (They jumped in my arms and one was a gift lol).

About Frances Rollason you are right, I found the site they were selling it (EUR 12.00, since I bought mine somewhat cheaply if compared with this price then I wouldn't mind it being Frances Rollason lol) and yes, it looks just like Samba Brazil so I have no way of knowing which one I have unfortunately. Also looking at all those photos of many different types some looks just too similar to be very sure that's the one I have. I hope that this year I might order few from Netherlands with names labelled. Of course there stays the chance they misplaces the label.

I think all of us know about those ones that just jump into your arms! Weird how they just keep doing that :) Yeah, I think there are some good sources in the Netherlands and the UK from what I understood :)

Julianna, previous year 8 jumped in my arms lol 5 of them were after they bloomed and I was more curious to see what colour they would be. Yes, I found one place in UK and another in Netherlands. Netherlands sell Easter cacti as well.

Did everyone - or anyone - get a second bloom on their TC? This is a first for me, but this pot is looking good this morning.

I'm sat here on a gloomy, rainy day in Uk and I have so enjoyed looking at all the beautiful plants on this thread. Absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your pics folks. Cheers me up

Your plant is gorgeous, Nik23!

Well, shucks! No wonder this is a first for me. I've never had the plants outside to experience the weather changes before. They would have frozen. (I also never had them last very long, but that's another story . . .)

I really should have thought of that. Thanks for waking me up!
