I had all varieties. It was nice to have one of them blooming almost all year 'round. And, I love the different colors - they are so beautiful! I have not had much luck w/ them here in TX; all I have is one puny blossomless baby.
Whenever I utter the word "exercise" I will rinse my mouth with chocolate!
My mother has a big one, Christmas variety I think. I had a gorgeous one but it died. I grew it from a piece. Unfortunately, I'm cactusless this year. I don't know if I like the pink, red or whites ones best.
I just bought one off the 75% off rack at Lowe's. From the buds on it, it appears to be pink, but for $2.00 for an 8" pot, I'm not picky about the color. I've wanted one for a while, but never got around to getting one. The deep discount was the incentive I needed.
