Tiny Pink Newborn

greenlarry(UK 8/9)May 1, 2013

I took a cutting from my old Thanksgiving Cactus and while it was rooting I noticed this little tiny shoot, less than an inch long, and how pink it was. I had to get pics!

It was a difficult setting as it was in a pot and I didnt want to see the pot in the shot so I had a bit of jiggery pokery to do!

The camera was tripod mounted and with the fading light I took some long exposure shots with the self timer-I had to be quick!

Here is a link that might be useful:

...No kidding!

I totally agree! ...The more I see of you guys' jungle cacti and what one can expect from them when they are grown well(now that you guys have shown me),the more I think I may have to get me some of those too...

Think I'll start some cuttings if I can find someone around here with any.

Remember that pic of the bonsai'd one a little while back? THAT'S what set me off,but Larry,that pink is outstanding.

Most impressive! :)

I said that, yes I meant the color. I see on FB that you've been busy creating stunning landscapes, but pop in more often! How's this plant doing? We NEED updates, more plant porn!

Wow, my TC has been producing leaves ever since it stopped blooming, but they're more of a reddish orange color (the typical new growth color), but that pink is just beautiful!

What I've noticed is that the new leaves are a pale version of the color of the blooms. White is very pale green, red a lighter red, pink is pink, yellow is yellowish green. Pretty interesting.

That IS interesting, Laura. I was noticing that different plants' new leaves have diff colors too. Hope I see flowers to comment on this connection.

Larry, I see you put some pics on C&S but no update here on this plant. I took one yesterday, I'll take up the slack. Does your plant make pink flowers?
