Xmas cactus graft     2/23/20
I find grafting these things really challenging. Only one of the four that I did took, and you're seeing the proof. My friend Steven Brack gave me the starts. He thought the flower color was pure white, but there is a slight pink tinge. The books say that if a white plant is cooled below 60 F (about 15C) the pink color comes out. I've been looking for a pure white plant ever since I read in a book that they exist, and the varietal name is "Siegfried."   (19/24)
