Rhipsalidopsis gaertneri

Cactus are on my 'fave plants' list and I love to start them from seed. Yay, got a picture!!   

Easy to start with a steady heat of 21C or 70F.  Not the easiest to keep going, does not like to dry out or be too moist, but just right.  Give it what it wants and it will bloom reliably each April and fall if you keep it outside all summer.....    Different tricks for different climates?

I've had mine outside on the porch since May, I live a stones' throw from the mountains, nights get cool, it is in full bloom mid October.

Schlumbergera truncata

Thanksgiving Cactus

This seed is the result of different crosses.  Peach onto reds and pinks and vice versa.  I've never succeeded in selfing a Thanksgiving cactus, pollinating one flower from another on the same plant.  Pollinating from a completely different plant does work and I would say 98% of the time, from my experience.  

I'm trying to germinate the seed right now as well.  I imagine it's like any other cacti seed.  I've place the seed on moistened coir and placed in a closed environment.  I like to use the plastic salad containers that have a fairly tight fitting lid.

Getting your Thanksgiving, Easter, or Christmas cacti to reliably rebloom is quite easy, keep them in a cool area for a couple of months.  Mine live in my unheated plant room and bloom for months over the winter.  Water regularly.

Sedum kamtschaticum 'variegatum'

Russian Stonecrop

I've found that most sedum are outstanding garden plants in colder zones.  They don't skip a beat when faced with mid-summer snow storms or chilly night temps.  They appear to be passed over by deer and moose as well.

This is on the deer resistant list.  Soft fuzzy grey green leaves form a rosette with spikes of pinkish blooms.  Tough plant, drought resistant as well.
