The Christmas Cactus on my kitchen windowsill blooms rather frequently for a Christmas Cactus. In May 2018, I wrote about how it had bloomed three times in the previous twelve months. Since then it bloomed this past December just after Christmas and is now blooming again. However, the African Violet that shares the windowsill blooms infrequently. But when the African Violet does bloom, it does so only when the Christmas Cactus is in bloom. Is it just a coincidence, or are they in some sort of symbiotic relationship?
“We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.” (Denis Waitley)
