Speechless Sundays: Droopy Cape Canaveral Christmas Cactus

 It went down into the 40's last night and my usually vibrant Christmas Cactus felt the cold as did I. It's only in the 60's at noon today but after all, this is December! I visited some Canadian neighbors last night and wore my insulated jacket for the first time this year. The shots of whatever it was didn't hurt either :-) That was after coming in third at the Sat. horseshoe tournament and playing my blues harp with "Sax Appeal" at Jump's Tiny Tavern for four songs. Life is good (even if it's cold). HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

 No bikinis on the beach today :-(

John,

What a wonderful Christmas cactus.  It will probably revive itself in no time.  A

I love Christmas cactus; don't seem to have a knack for keeping them alive and blooming, however.

John, sounds like you had a great day in spite of the chilly weather.  Blues harp?  How cool is that?

I am always amazed at how a dip in temperature can so forcefully impact plant life.  We had a similar situation here in Sacramento last week.  We dipped to temps just above freezing, but it has nearly wiped out 90% of my flowering plants (Begonias, Geraniums, Morning Glorys).  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, John!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) almost 7 years ago

Merry Christmas Myrl! The plants always seem to recover eventually. My begonias don't look so hot either :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) almost 7 years ago

Mine looks exactly the same and you are correct, they recover quickly here in the Sunshine State.

Lovely Christmas cactus. I use to have a green thumb many years ago. Now it is black. I kill almost every plant I acquire.

Barbara-Jo - It will look brand new next week :-)

Sussie - All you need is s little "Miracle Grow" :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) almost 7 years ago

John,

Our Christmas cactus weathered the 40s much better than this. Maybe it'll perk back up. :)
