Over a decade ago I bought a small plant and was told it was a Christmas/Passover cactus and for 2 years in a row it did blossom around Christmas/Passover and then, in the third year, it was my Leap Year birthday and I saw a couple of buds in mid-February and, yes, they bloomed on the 29th!
A couple of years went by and the plant grew huge so I decided to cut off a few branches and re-pot them and within a year I had 6 'Christmas/Passover Cacti' and as each year passed they bloomed on another holiday until now and this week they really blew my mind! With 12 days to go until Memorial Day both the parent plant and one of the 'pups' started to show buds getting ready to bloom.
They now have only one holiday they haven't bloomed on and that is July 4th!!
After they bloom I am going to have to explain to them that they are Christmas/Passover plants and shouldn't be blooming whenever they want or they will get a bad reputation--let alone drive me crazy(ier)!
