Hi, don't know if you remember that Thanksgiving Cactus that my DH refused to throw away or not, kept it alive in a jar all this time, trying to root it, Me? I would have tossed it a long time ago~~

but look at what it did!! it has a few more blossems on it too!! I NEVER would have guess this would happen!!

I love Mother Nature!!

Marjie, amazing. Is it Thanksgiving already?? :)

The flower is so pretty. Bet you're glad your dh kept it.

The root inside the jar looks gigantic! Is it my eyes are is that one huge root?

That's pretty cool! A very pretty flower. Awesomely inspiring to see such a large section take root. If it did that in water, I'm sure it would be possible in a pot also. Is DH unbearably smug about it? LOL! Why would you want to toss it? I would have wanted to propagate it, but would have made way too many plants out of it, a whole pot ghetto of them.

Here she is NOW!! purttier!! lol

The reason I didn't take anything from it and start up more, is because at the time, I wasn't even getting my little starters growing, seemed to take forever. And it is my DH's and yes, he is very smug about it!! I guess I am lucky that he is on the road and I can't hear it-- lol.. But he will probibly want to soil it when it is done blooming. It has at least 4 more buds on it.

and purple-- this is a better shot of the "root" it is just now starting to root with little hair like roots, it was just a "stump" for lack of a better work

Am I glad he didn't toss it? maybe, the plant as a whole still looks sad, maybe soiling will help that...

Marjie~~ still amazed with it!
