I need one of those. I need a white blooming one. Last time I checked, I breathe air and I killed one off. Where can I buy a big one of those online? The one I killed was my husband's that he had kept alive for over 20 years... until he turned its care over to me a few years ago. I killed it in no time flat. Seeing your plant reminded me that I wanted to buy another one.

Gorgeous...!!! Eric, you're wrong... I also breathe air and i (nearly) killed it too... we're in the same boat, TheLorax...:pity: this plant turns to mush in hot tropical weather...:( i still have 2 or 3 surviving stems.. i let them 'piggyback' on the medium of my orchids and they thrive... but when i grow them separately, they die...:mad:

I too have flowered my Xmas cactus. My favorite the yellow form and the white lacy petal one. They are cool.

Check locally - you don't want to ship them, let alone a big.

I have one like Eric's & it exploded the last couple of days as well!

Ramon - both pictures are fabulous - very pretty & different!

Most any place that sells pointsettias, a GH/florist would probably have a larger selection.

I've seen them before at Home Depot and Menards right around Christmas time but not yet this year. I know WalMart has carried them before but I stopped shopping there. I have seen a few pink ones at the grocery store of all places. Hopefully I'll stumble across a white.

I got one. It's a tiny little pathetic looking plant but it's pure white. Anyone want to place wagers on how long it takes me to kill it?

It's still sitting on the kitchen counter in a brown paper bag. I need to drill a hole to hang it in the ceiling of a room off the beaten path so he doesn't see it. Fortunately, I think I know where to hang it so that he doesn't see it. We have a couple rooms that he never goes into so it should be safe until I give it to him as a gift.

Glad you found one. Don't kill it before you give it to him. Tell him you're sorry about the last one and he should be responsible for the new one. :)

I'm potting it right now. Figured I'd pot it up in Pro Mix. All the better to kill it in I guess. All it has to do is survive about another week and I can assure that will be the very first gift he gets that night. I don't want nothin to do with that thing!
