Nature Tuesday Challenge – Christmas Cactus Saved

My Christmas caucus has survived a few major attacks a couple from a field mice, a near rotting situation in the rain and has bloomed again. I never expected it to even survive the ordeal. The plant had to be  put under constant care and doses of anti fungal powders. There are just about 10-20 flowers until now. I am just happy to see that it has survived the odds to see this year.

It always makes me happy to save plants , birds and animals. It doesn’t cost too much to get another plant but it doesn’t bring you as much happiness as having saved a dying, battered plant. Last week I picked up a sad looking fox tail fern someone had thrown on the side of the road. I have decided to nurse it to health and give it to my friend who has been wanting one.

It is better to save than buy, what do you think?

  1. It’s always great to maintain a plant alive. Now that I think about it, some of mine are 10 or more year old. Christmas cactuses are quite tough, even I could keep mine for a long time and they still bloom from time to time.
