Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. In 2012 we opened for the NGS. https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/26064/

The first flower has opened just in time for #succulentsunday 💕 and there are quite a few other buds waiting in the wings, too! #zygocactus #thanksgivingcactus #pink #houseplant #succulent 💚

I thought this was a #thanksgiving-cactus but it seems to flower between January and March so maybe I’ve got the identification wrong? #zygocactus #succulent #pinkflowers #indoorplant #houseplant #nationalhouseplantweek 💚

No, you're right, it's a Thanksgiving cactus, if you don't do all the light-timing and other things to force them, they tend to bloom or not to their own schedule

Thanks Leslie. I originally identified it by the leaf shape/size so I’m glad I got that right! I don’t do anything to it, just let it do its own thing, and if it’s happy then so am I 😂😂😍😘 @lesliecole491

I took a photo of this for #foliagefriday then noticed a tiny bud 💕 You can just see it in the photo, at the end of the bottom left leaf! No other buds but the plant has put on a lot of growth in the past few months. Swipe left to see its progress 💚 #zygocactus #bud #succulent 💚

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 🤔

#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
