My Schlumbergera collection is blooming a little late this season.
I have various colors. I will always love the red for Christmas time.
My three favorites are white, gold and salmon.
Both the gold and white blushed pink this year.
I went out of town for Thanksgiving, so I think the temperature dropped in my home.
I have read that getting cooler than 57 degrees Fahrenheit causes an increase in pink and red pigments.
I may experiment with a gold and a white next year to see if this is true.
Many more buds are forming in my workshop. I should have blooms through the New Year.
I so appreciate flowers this time of year. It’s another dreary, rainy day here. Bright flowers help my mood.
Hooray Schlumbergera truncata!
