Stay Safe

Good and bad days come and go. Today I want showcase my two plants that I am very please about. The first is a Norfolk pine it was Christmas gift 2 years ago. The tree is not winter hardy and must kept indoors. This is starting it 3rd year and it is putting on new growth.

I first encounter this plant when we where traveling in our Motorhome. We in Yuma, Arizona we found the trees. We learn the are called BOOJAM TREES. I was surprise to find small at the grocery store and for awhile the small plants where in all the stores. I brought one home and likes its current location. IT is starting its dormant time and I not sure how to handle it. Wish us luck!

    Both plants are beautiful, and I’m sure they give you a lot of pleasure. I was not even aware of the “dormant period” for anything except a Christmas cactus, but I bet you’ll figure out the best way to care for it.

    • Thanks ALmost all of succlent have dormint period. The florist germinium has period if you want cutting you must leave the stems harden for aound 24 hours. The Christmas cacti likes cool weather, it wants a period darkness and no water to bloom.

  2. We had a confused Christmas cactus which bloomed at Christmas and Easter! I gave cuttings to my Mum and sister and they all thrived to do the same.
