The ugly cacti-ling

Eleven months out of the year, my Christmas cactus is the plainest, homeliest little thing you ever saw. Pitiful.

But just before Christmas, she looks like this and she makes me so happy!! I just had to show her off. If you're looking for a plant to keep you company that's easy to take care of (I mean, seriously, I do NOTHING for this plant but water it every month or so), you should get a Christmas cactus. They are dirt cheap right now! And you will be so happy next December!! This one was a gift from my mama. She just clipped me some off hers, potted it and handed it to me three years ago.

She's a sad little mess most of the year.

She's a beautiful swan now!
