They always remind me of my Dad who loved crab cactus and had many varieties. They grow very easily from a cutting although they are slow growing. He used to like to plant several different colours in the one basket so as to create an amazing show when they bloom. He did a similar thing with frangapani trees, planting two varieties quite close to each other so they would intertwine and look like one amazing multicolour tree.
I am lucky my crab cactus usually blooms twice for me. It must like the spot...because it certainly isn't because of attention.
Hope you all have a lovely day.
