4th Bloom Cycle For My TC!

Wow, this is unreal!
As I posted about my Thanksgiving Cactus going through her third bloom cycle back in February, I mused that it would be something to have her bloom for a fourth time. In reality, I wasn't really expecting her to.
Well, she proved me wrong!
This is today, with more buds yet to open:

Four bloom cycles?
Holy cow, she's going to kill herself.
I've never seen anything like it. Two bloom cycles, yes. But, four?
I certainly hope she doesn't bloom herself to death.
Hmmm, I wonder if her seedlings will end up doing something like this. (They're coming along just dandy, by the way. And so cute!)
A continually blooming Thanksgiving cactus would be pretty cool, don't you think?

Happy (re-blooming!) Growing

Most unusual, and if it does die at least you have the seedlings!
Happy gardening...Flighty xx

Dirty Gir,
Thanks! :)

True, but I'd really hate to lose her. Now I'm wondering just how long she'll keep doing this.

thanks! And thanks! :)

thank you! I think so too, but I'm a little pregidous. lol
