Thanks...I've had this thing for five years or so now, bought it at a yard sale in Victoria for a buck. Every year at this time it gives forth great blooms of purple and red, doesn't eat much either :)

Beautiful shot MAW....
I have one too but I have neglected it a bit too much in the past year so I only got one flower. They love being neglected but i guess to a point...lol. I think mine is so root bound I will have to break the pot to get the thing out and I don't think there is any more soil in it. What happens when you don't change the pot for 10 years...lol!
Anybody want a 20 year old Xmas cactus? :D

Ok, I just had a look at your photoblog and I gotta say the dark blue background really offsets your already fantabulous photos!

Pictures of flowers are my favorite. This is an amazing shot I really like the colours with the dark background. How did you do the background? Photoshop?

Thanks...Background was a piece of black cloth placed in the cactus pot draped down behind the flower:)
