Why are you reporting this puzzle?

The upper plant is a Thanksgiving cactus..The leaves are shorter and chubbier..I haven’t seen any flowers on the 5-6 year old momma plant since I bought it..I keep hoping .. one day..

The bottom plant is a Christmas cactus..The leaves are longer and skinnier..

Both of these are babies from the Momma plants I also have..

There is also an Easter cactus which I don’t have and each one blooms at the time of their names..

Kossamu

Dobra, OR maybe HE who I would could She because girls are like flowers😂😂 IS a Thanksgiving Cactus..which is in November here in USA❣️ Enjoy your flowering plant❣️

Kossamu

Donna, Thanks for your calculations ❣️

Kossamu

Dawn, I replanted all mine in a good soil with all the nutrients they need..maybe next year I do what the book says to fertilize them a couple of times in summer..These cactuses are tropical and grows on trees in the high humidity climate😊

Kossamu

Val, your input is very interesting and as these plants are tropical and not desert plants I can very well see them blooming when the weather is right❣️ I would love to have one in each color😺..You truly do not need anymore work with plants when you have a Botanical Garden who needs your attention❣️ At the moment I have 11 Christmas Cactuses and 2 Thanksgiving Cactuses + 29 others, mostly succulents ❣️
Hugs my dear friend❣️🤗❣️

Kossamu

Donna, According to the How To..you only fertilize twice in the summer..I didn’t, but gave them new potting soil with everything they require and like you said…they shot high and lots of nice green leaves❣️

Kossamu

Rebecca, Thanks for your input❣️ According to how to grow these cactuses it says to NOT water them in October and let them have some water in November and give them more dark time than light time and have the temperature at 50-60F..yeah right..it’s still 85-90F here😂😂Hey, I’m not going by the book, but trying hard with what I can do❣️

Kossamu

Jill, you are most welcome❣️🤗❣️

Kossamu

Dawn, Sorry, but I had no idea the Easter cactus has orange blooms❣️ and how awesome it’s going to brighten your days ahead with its blooms❣️ According to how to care for these cactuses it says to repot them every 2 years and fertilize them twice in summer😊

Kossamu

MissJewely, Thank You for stopping by and sharing your story and I’m pleased for the ones who got a clear picture of the Difference ❣️ It’s always good to have an open mind and learn something new😊

Kossamu

Ardy, you do have a good point😊 but the instructions for growing these plants does not mention pollination ❣️ Maybe this is the season with many blooms😊 and if not..they are still beautiful and keepers❣️ Thanks Ardy and Hugs my friend❣️🤗❣️

Kossamu

Donna, you are very welcome❣️ After last year’s disappointment by my oldest Christmas cactus and still I followed all the rules and ended up with 2-3 blooms🙀 But after replanting all my 9 Christmas Cactuses they all came alive and all look beautiful and hope I get them all blooming next month❣️

Kossamu

landal, You are most welcome and true bloomers ❣️😊❣️

Eva, my Christmas cactus is full of flowers! Apparently he uses a different calendar? :-)

FYI - It is all about the numbers.

If you are looking to boost flower production, you want a mix like 15-30-15, which is high in flower-developing phosphorus---the middle number.
If you want to green up your lawn, or promote foliage, choose a mix like 25-6-4, which is high in nitrogen---the first number.

Many fertilizers are formulated for specific plants like roses, bulbs, or vegetables.

firstdawn

Well thanks for that important info. I was thinking about giving it a healthy dose of Miracle Grow.

Eva fascinating thank you the one you call Christmas Cactus, we called Inch Plant as the leaves were about an inch they flower here in our winter May to July, we did have them in White, Cerise, and Red, now I have no indoor plants. Hugs my friend ♥♥♥

dhi

The other thought that occurs to me is no fertilizer which generally tends to promote green growth rather than flowering.

RebeccaB

I had a cutting that bloomed a few years then stopped. I looked online (I forget the address) and found they want less light as well as less water at the end of summer, to bloom around the end of the year. It worked great! Good luck.

JillianB

Thank you for the succulents lesson Eva 😊😊

firstdawn

Kossamu, you said my cactus was an Easter cactus. It's got itty-bitty flower buds on it now. (I need to repot it).

Thanks for the cactus lesson! On Wednesday I took a friend to her doctor appointment and she was telling me that she always mistakenly calls her Thanksgiving cactus a Christmas cactus and another friend always “needs” to correct her. I didn’t know there was a difference before that. But now you “showed” us the difference:) You reinforced my newly acquired knowledge with this puzzle. Great timing! TY

ringleader

Thanks, Eva. I knew there was a difference but didn't know what it was. I can see it clearly here. Your Thanksgiving cactus has not bloomed, you say. How does it get pollinated? I don't know much about such things but know that can be a problem when plant does not bloom. Good puzzle for Jigidi U. Hugs dear friend♥♥

dhi

Thanks for the puzzle, I did not know, either.
Flowering may be forced by letting the plant dry slightly more than usual.

landal

Thanks for the education -- I never knew! I love these, blooming so colorfully in winter.
