SPINY “THANKSGIVING” SUCCULENT
From the arid region, emerging from the heat, sun, aloneness, air, light and rocks I have now travelled to the city, unused to the human inhabitant, artificial noise, confined and constricted places. I am considered as an unique “gift”idea for the special occasion of human on earth the “Thanksgiving”. I am Thanksgiving cactus, who blooms at the end of October or beginning of November, with tubular and beautiful flowers portraying colors from white to dark red, and shading from dark orange to light purple. Thanksgiving Cactus (Schlumbergera truncate) has sharply serrated or "toothed" leaves as compared to the more rounded leaves of the Christmas cactus. Thanksgiving Cactus is easy to grow them from cuttings. Planted in a decorative pot, they make a nice hostess gift, holiday table centerpiece, or present for friends and family on the Thanksgiving Eve. It offers you a brief idea about Thanksgiving gift ideas. One can buy rooting hormone at local garden center or nursery supply store. Placing the cutting where it will get good air circulation is a good idea, out of direct sun, for a week or so to allow the wound to begin healing. Before planting the plant, push the root end of the cutting into the potting medium about one inch deep. The medium should be kept just barely moist. To help prevent the soil from drying out, invert a plastic bag over the pot. Use straws or popsicle sticks to keep the bag from resting on the foliage. Thanksgiving was never been so exciting with such weird and unique gift idea. So guys what are u waiting for go and get one succulent today and start thanking people in a way that the rest of the world is not!!
