All of my indoor plants are beginning to bloom. There’s something special about this time of year.
My Thanks Giving Cactus has flower buds that are growing every day. I don’t think they’ll open in time for Thanks Giving but they’ll bloom shortly after. Then there’s my Christmas cactus. Thanks to leaving it out in the cool weather for an extended period it’s already got tiny pink flower buds all over it. I think it will be in full bloom well before Christmas. Hopefully both cactus bloom a couple of times this winter season.
I also have three Amaryllis plants. Mine usually bloom in March of each each or at least somewhere between February and March. I have an African violet and I could never get it to bloom for years. You’d think that would be blooming it’s head off since they are supposed to be easy but mine wouldn’t bloom until I accidently forgot to water it once or twice. It seems they like to be very dry or at least mine does as ever since I’ve let it be mostly dry it’s been blooming and blooming.
My orchids will also start blooming sometime in the next month or so as well. I love having live orchids in the house. They’re so beautiful. Lovely delicate blooms. The flowers last for such a long time once they bloom too! I have three or four orchids.
Do you have flowering plants inside your home? What kinds do you have? Aren’t they lovely, especially when it’s cold and drab outside.
