Hi
My red forms started coloring in early Oct. this year, they have true flowers already!! The whites and pinks are only slightly behind but see no flowers as yet. At this rate they'll be shot by thanksgiving lol
have no idea why this is happening as they have set in the same location for over 5 years and were always right on cue .
Oh well they fit right in with my C. cactus flowers on groundhog day and Easter lilies are prime on July 4th. Guess i should add some easter cactus need some flowers for labor day ?? gary
