First I thought this was a #thanksgiving-cactus then it became a #christmas-cactus and now it’s an #easter-cactus 😂 Not bad for a plant that was on its last legs (or leaves!) a few months ago!!! #nevergiveup #tlcworks #succulentsunday #pinkflowers #houseplant 💕

Mine doesn’t look very happy. I’m not sure I’m lo9king after it properly! Any tips?

Not really, Alison! Mine is on a south-east facing windowsill above a radiator and seems to be happy enough. I water it occasionally with rain water but apart from that I’ve left it to do its own thing. I did repot it last year so maybe you could repot yours and see what happens. 🤞 @bluefox23

Now here’s the question. Is this a very, very late flower on a #thanksgivingcactus or a very late flower on a #christmascactus or a very early flower on an #eastercactus 🤔 If I’m confused I wonder how the #cactus is feeling 😳😂 #houseplant #pink

A very very late Thanksgiving Cactus. Mine actually flowered at the correct time last year Barbara 👍🏼🤔

You’re probably right, Sarah, as the first flowers were around Thanksgiving. There’s another tiny flower bud on the opposite side of the plant, so I’m hoping that it will also open, given time 🤞 @sieveheadsarah

I think I can see another bud Barbara on the right hand side leaf 🤔🤔

You might be right, Sarah. It’s really tiny so it might not develop into a flower at this late stage but you never know! @sieveheadsarah

Isn’t it to do with the leaf shape - I think later ones have smoother leaves 🤔

I’ll do some investigating, Sharon 👍 @sharonhayden

#mondaymotivation Never give up on a plant! I have to admit to sorely neglecting this over the past months, so much so that it was withered and almost dead. I repotted and fed it and stood in on a sunny window sill above a radiator and hey presto! It’s come back to life and it’s flowering 💕 #cactus #thanksgiving-cactus #pinkflowers #nevergiveup #houseplant 02/12/2019
