Indoor Sign Of Spring?

My Christmas cactus is getting more buds than it did at Christmas! I’m really looking forward to seeing some color as we slowly slide into spring. The leaves are the philodendron that sits next to the Christmas cactus in the living room.

Are you seeing signs of spring (or fall for our Southern Hemisphere friends) in your area?

  1. Beautiful!!! Hubby bought me 2 Christmas cactus’ before Christmas. They were both in full bloom. I also have a very small piece of one that I have had for at least 8 years, that only bloomed when it was first given to me. Ugh. Of the 2 I received at Christmas time, the one in the kitchen is strong and sturdy. No new buds though. The other is on the opposite side of the house and is getting limp and wrinkly. So I popped it into the kitchen hoping it will perk up. What do you do to get your to bloom again? I know that you are supposed to put them in darkness part of the year and then indirect sunlight part of the year. I haven’t moved mine.

  4. Snow drops blooming in CT starting last week; daffodils up and budding now.

    Blooming now – doesn’t that make it an Easter cactus?!?

  5. No Christmas cactus here, though I have tried growing them with little luck. Sadly I think my thumb is black! But there have been lots of robins and a hint of spring to come in the air. Hooray 🎉

  8. We have daffodils coming up all over the place, and the tulips are about three inches high. I’m not much of a gardener (see my reply to Ginny) so anything that blooms is strictly a volunteer. Between me and the deer, there’s not much going on around here.

    What a great time for it to bloom! I started some zinnias in a planter last Sunday (inside) and they have sprouted, and I planted Brussels sprouts in starter trays yesterday. Not even the weeds are turning green here yet, but I did see four robins this morning walking Max. 🙂

  10. It is starting to feel like spring here. The spring bulbs are shooting up and I didn’t need a jacket this afternoon.

  11. Your plants look wonderful! What a nice treat to have a little color at this time of year 🙂 We’re just starting to thaw out a bit here. Enjoying seeing everyone else’s spring flowers and birds and so on.

  12. Southern hemisphere in Johannesburg, SA, is still looking very green and lush. We are still having rain now and again, and the lawns are still being mowed regularly. Weather is still hot, around 30 C midday still. 🙂 Glad Spring is moving your way, I would not mind Fall coming to visit and cooling things down a bit here.

    We have blossom everywhere and daffodils. Indoors my orchids think it’s warm enough to flower and it’s always anticipation time because I can never remember which is which, white, purple and yellow/red.

    The unpaved road that leads to our driveway is nearly dry! Our driveway is still soggy, but soon…

    Finally saw shoots coming up out of the ground, hopefully a light snow doesn’t burn them off and the daffodils bloomed on time. It takes forever on Cape Cod.
