Ok thanks Eric and Flynn.
This cactus is at least 40 years old. My mother in law had it from before I knew my husband. It thrives on neglect. It goes outdoors in the summer and has fallen over several times in strong winds and had large chunks broken off(and sometimes chewed, thanks E&F) It only gets watered when I remember which is usually when it has wilted. It usually flowers early, but this year looks as if it will be in full flower for Christmas.
Mum agree's about the care, neglect and going outside in the summer. Actually all of her plants have to survive on benign neglect.
It's blooming at just the right time, too!
Anyway, I have posted something ugly, hope you can come over:
Have a nice WW!

FORTY years old?
We are going to get ML one of these for Xmas. It is decided! She had one just this color long ago but we do not know where it went.
She had to leave ALL of her houseplants in CO when we moved and she misses them so much. Some were over 10 years old and HUGE.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
