It's my first Green Thumb Sunday! I thought I would show my schlumbergera in bloom. I put it up high so we can all admire the hanging flowers. Just below it, my Thunbergia is still blooming nicely:
I got this Schlumbergera years ago. It was sitting in someone's office on the window sill, apparantly abandoned from a previous owner. It looked a bit shiveled up, and even a little ugly. I felt sorry for it, so took it to my own office and gave it some loving care. Looked like a cactus to me, I didn't know what it was. This was in the summertime.
A few months later, during November, it put on this most gorgeous show! Well, at that time, there were maybe 4 flowers blooming. I was so surprised and happy to have found and rescued this amazing plant. And it has been with me ever since.
