So we come home after work, and we’re hanging out, and we don’t notice anything isn’t normal. And then all of a sudden, I realize…
Holy crap, the orchid cactus bloomed!
I hadn’t tried to make this thing flower, or noticed any signs that it might do so. This thing just… popped out of nowhere.
The flower continued to fan out all night, to the point where it was almost as big as my hand. And it smelled incredibly good.
By the next morning, it had started to wilt.
And by the time we came home it was completely gone – not withered and hanging there, just not there at all. It vanished as suddenly as it appeared.
This is the same windowsill where I had the poinsettia when it turned red again. The thanksgiving cactus blooms a lot, too. I’m thinking it’s a magic windowsill.
