More wax Begonias that live with a Philodendron. I wouldn't think this pot is in enough light for them, but here are some blooms.

Some kind of Rhipsalis, I think.

Purple,
Your last picture is Rhipsalis salicornioides, AKA 'Drunkard's Dream." I think it's one of a few (or the only one) Rhipsalis I've seen that have yellow flowers.

My bloomers are all repeats, as well, Tiffany.
Two of my Euphorbias are blooming, but their cyathia are of little consequence. My Meyer Lemon is on the verge of opening its blooms. And my Christmas Cactus is opening new blooms daily, even as the spent blooms fall away.

Tiffany,
I've seen them called both Rhipsalis and Hatiora... not sure which one is the "correct" Genus name though. I know EA labels theirs as Rhipsalis, but we know how funky EA can be with their nomenclature haha.

Hope you all are staying warm with this massive snow storm in the North East. Brrrrr...

The name of this Plumeria is called " Sparky".

Hey, Mike, good to see ya! And great blooms, too! Look at all those Orchids.

Here's a shot of my Euphorbia millii that was a stow-away in one of the Jades you sent me, Mike. This one blooms most of the year.

Thanks, Grant, I'd love to tell the story! :-)

Mike sent me several Jades that he rescued from a nursery that was going out of business. In the root-ball of one of those Jades, right at the edge of the container, there was this tiny stem that had obviously grown from a seed (judging by the small size and the single, undamaged central root). It was leafless and wrinkled from dehydration, and I had no idea what it was. Truth be told, I nearly tossed it. But then I thought, Heck, why not pot it and grow it? So I did.

A week or two after potting it in lava rock, perlite, and a fraction of bark, the stem plumped back up and began to grow leaves at the top. This is what it looked like a month after potting. 2-inch container for reference.

These are awesome! For those who remember me putting Sans in the ground for summer, here's what I kept after sending most of the extras to new homes. Just dug them up and sat them in this pot. Had to bring the pot inside last night, too cold even in the shed. This morning, I noticed this!

one of my noid thanksgiving cactus in bud
one of my peach thanksgiving cactus in bloommy true Christmas cactus the first time it has bloomed in 3 years!Josh this is why I was so interested in your story because a new plant rescue place had open and bought a few plants there and when I went to pay for the plants they didn't have enough change for me and they were short a dollar and I said could I take a cutting off a plant here in exchange for the dollar. They said it was fine so I went straight to the E. Millii. Man was that plant ugly it only had one stem and it was about 5 feet tall! But it had some small branches on it and took a cutting off of it! Not as interesting as Josh's story!

Grant, that's a cool story and a cool rescue! Meyer Mike also sent me one of the large-leafed varieties, but it isn't blooming right now. I'm no fan of pokey plants, but I'll take an Euphorb over a glochid-bearing Cacti any day of the week.

Here's a shot of the small-leafed E. milii, as it is now. Still in the same small container. I plan to prune it down low so that it stays compact and bushy. This one re-grows leaves/branches from pretty much anywhere along the trunk.

Hey Josh....Love love love the flowers on yours!I love how far along that Milli has come along..It grew bigger and faster than mine.

Chris..Not bad..I love the tallness of it..Sorry Ihave not been around since my car accident..We will catch up.
Many of my succulents are flowering in the basement, which reminds me.

Tom, where in the world did you get that Orchid!? The Phal? I never saw one that color or that pretty..I would grow one too if they had them here. Never desired to grow one until I saw yours.

Pumpkin..Beautiful!

Laura...I can't believe you still have flowering Plumeria..What the heck? They are beautiful!!!!!!
Good job.
Congrats on the Star Flower..Pretty

Grant, where did you get that top flower? String of Pearls? It is strange looking..Love it

Purple and everyone else, AMAZING!.

Not a great blooming on this one though it does have a few more buds started.

This bud is on its way out but it has several more 'nubbins' started

A new plant for me ... got it as a cutting back in Nov.

Pot o'pings still chugging along

Psygmorchis pusilla ... a space saver -- plant is only about 1.5 inches (approx. 3.5 cm) tall

Another for those who lack space -- entire plant including flower spike is only about 2 inches (5cm) tall from the base of the plant to the top. Happens to be fragrant too.

This is sort of a pre-bloom, just so excited been waiting for almost 2 years to see what color this kalanchoe is. :-)

I think it should make it before Jan 31. I will have to be careful though, its been fussy in its current state. Poor draining soil, north window. I let it get too dry a week or so ago and lost some buds. This spring i will do a much needed repot, just gotta pickup some perlite. I don't want to put it in "normal" gritty mix, its container is so large it would be too heavy. Substitute perlite for granite aught to do the trick.

Smishgibson, perlite is more water-retentive than granite grit, especially smaller-particle perlite. Screen it, like the rest of the ingredients. You should probably be ok, but watch for overwatering just in case.

Do wish it wasn't so difficult to capture many of the reds and purples accurately with digital cameras. Never had that problem with film. Color should be much darker and richer -- none of the magenta garbage. (The font color I'm using is actually a bit closer.) If only you could see the actual color. *sigh*

This one starts off green then 'ripens' to yellow.

Lightly fragrant

I must admit I often forget about this mini. It's literally always in bloom (or darn close to it) so really have reached the point of rarely noticing. It has about filled up the 3inch pot its in -- and it has only taken around 5yrs or so to do it from the 0.5 inch plug I started with. heh (For those of you who have yet to venture into the world of micro minis, this is why they cost at least as much if not more than that blooming sized catt or cym. ;) )

The flower is roughly 5-6mm long from front to back. Entire plant stands about 1.5 - 2 inches (4-5cm) high.

This bloom opened finally today on my Oncidium NOID orchid, so I guess it counts as a January bloom, but only one has opened so far (well almost completely open). I bought it for only a couple of dollars on clearance last winter cause it was completely out of bloom, so I had no idea what it would look like or even what color it would be, so it was VERY exciting to finally find out. Its a beautiful burnt orange color, I just love it!! I cant wait for the rest of them to open!!

I have a Chlorophytum laxum 'Bichetii' that has bloomed a couple times already and has a handful of buds forming right now. It took me several pictures before I could get one that wasn't blurry:

Gasteraloe 'Green Ice' Now this one is sort of a cheat, it was blooming when I purchased it:

Another cheat, this AV was blooming when I purchased it. It has a few more buds forming on it, so hopefully I'll have another set of blooms to look at. The one bloom is a bit odd looking to say the least:
