Thank you to a very nice GW member who sent me some wonderful Christmas cactus cuttings (Thank you Linda) :-)! I'm looking forward to have a real xmas cactus again. Here are a few pictures after I potted them up.

I checked out my Thanksgiving Cactus in the garage (picture attached), and I see buds forming :-).

Hopefully next year I will be able to see these Christmas Cactus cuttings form buds.

I wish the cuttings I have looked as good as americangolden. I got a few cuttings too, from someone here and they looked better in the box! I do have a few that are not doing too bad, but the few that aren't are soft and wilty. They didn't have any roots, and I have always had a hard time rooting in soil with any plant. I am glad to hear tho, that some just "don't take"~~ but still~~

But I am going to keep them, and hope for the best, just because I want to.

Anyway, congrats on the new additions! :)
