Is the common name for this plant "Christmas cactus"? I just bought one for my office. Just looking at it calms me down when I'm having a bad work day.
Sure is. It's a relatively unassuming plant until it bursts into bloom!
Thanks for the link! The red variety is very interesting. I'll have to read up on it and maybe make it part of my landscaping next year. So you're an engineering major with a love of plants? Hopefully you can find a job when you graduate that will marry these two things.
That's what I'm hoping. I'm just not entirely sure what that will be...
I love the look of your blog with the plants flanking the text. How did you accomplish it? After seeing this post, I'm wanting to try another one of these cacti. Houseplants and I don't usually get along. I tend to spend more time with the outside ones and neglect the ones inside.
Thanks for contributing!
