Day 1: I've had this Christmas cactus for our entire marriage. Fun fact about me: I don't just have a black thumb, I have a black-hole thumb. I do not keep plants alive. Another fun fact: my mom comes to my house often with the simple goal of watering my plants. That being said, this Christmas cactus and I have been through almost 11 years together, and yet it is still alive. There have been months where it has not been watered (I realize that it's a cactus, but that's still a loooong time). Within the past few years, it has started to love me even more and has started producing blooms near Christmas. This year, it produced two! I've said it to my family several times - if this plant ever dies, watch me closely! I'm probably not far behind - haha.
