Thanksgiving Cactus

ThanksgivingCactus I’m always amazed when this plant blooms, we’ve had it for over fifteen years and it is still going strong. When we were building this house more than 10 years ago we put most everything in storage including this plant. Loading everything into the truck to move we came to a tall stack of summer tires, a set for both cars, and after picking them up we found this plant had been living on the floor inside the stack of tires. No water, no light, I knew it would die. Later that spring the crazy cactus bloomed! And it has continued to bloom twice a year ever since! This is the only plant that I have not killed, it defies my abuse.
