Holiday Cactus/ Thanksgiving? Gift from BIL ..
What was he thinking?!? DH went to celebrate the last of Christmas with his family yesterday, I was sick and stayed home. He walked in with this little plant, from his brother. I asked if it was his, mine or the family's gift, he said family from his Brother. I laughed and told him good luck with it!
This is one I dearly love but have never bought because all I read makes it seem to be a pain and fickle plant! So.. any pointers for a newbie who now has one that she never planed on having? lol.
from all I've read it needs moved out of the peat garbage it came in that is soggy!!! I saw somewhere that Josh suggested straight bark, and a web site suggested bark a tiny bit of organic and grit. I'm concerned straight bark would be too much to keep up with here in summer.
