A few qestions on Thanksgiving Cacti
Hi Everyone, Hope you are all doing well. :)
I have a Thanksgiving Cactus, Not huge, but not small either. It was given to me in not so good shape. She wasn't taken care off too well.
I recently repotted (same size pot) in 5-1-1 mix, so far she seems to like it.
My first question is: one whole stem is almost torn all the way off, but the segments seem to not be affected too bad, kinda wilty, but not really dying. Should I let it be and see? Or take off the stem where it is torn?
Second Question: There seems to be a lot of segments with holes in them, most these are at the very end of plant, and there seem to be no new growth. Should I take off the segments with the holes? Not sure what caused them, but there aren't any more or bigger.
All she produced so far is one little flower, nothing eles is showing up. What bothers me the most is the lack of ANY new growth on this plant. Not too overly worried about the lack of flowers, wasn't really expecting any, but I am concerned about the lack of now growth.
Third Question: I have a few little TC's, they are FINALLY doing good! lol (took forever to root) but they are just starts. How old is a TC before they start to flower? I know it will be a while before the babies will flower, but I was just wondering when they will..
Thank you for any comments and answers for me, this plant means a lot to me, the person I got it from was a friend that passed on last month, would love to see it grow and flower~~ just for her~~ :)
