Christmas Cactus Rescue
My husband brought home a Christmas cactus that looks kind-of pathetic. It apparently had several tiny buds all over it, but many have fallen off, and the rest that are big enough to examine look all shriveled. Maybe somewhere in transition it got too cold, or too dry? Is there any chance that this thing will actually still bloom this season? If not, I'm tempted to just throw it out, since I seem to regularly kill any Christmas cactus that I try to keep alive year-round. They seem to shrivel up and break off right at the soil level . . . can't figure out whether I overwater or underwater, or if it's some kind of fungal disease or something that gets them. Any advice?
