I love this Christmas Cactus! It was given to my mother during the winter of 2002-2003 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. I have divided it once, and in the future, I plan to make more of them for my family members and others. I call the plant "Mom's Cancer Cactus" but we all know that it's really a Christmas Cactus. Even though the plants only bloom once a year, their blooms are so welcome during those cold damp days of winter. I hope to buy others in time, but for now, I have both Mom's Cancer Cactus" and my mom too!
