    The 2015 season of Zygo flowers - schlumbergera truncata - is upon us. They have burst forth in buds in such a short time. Should not be surprised as they are called "Flor de Maio" or"May Flowers" in Brazil which is when they flower in the Southern Hemisphere. The smaller pot holds the regrown & rejuvenated old plant of a type of zygo which is unknown. The larger pot if the now thriving (cross fingers) "White Fantasy" zygo plants which survived the dreaded brown rot a few years ago.

    Thanks Granny.  :thanks: It will be a few weeks yet before they flower although there are two buds which will be the first as they are quite big already. Think they are "Strawberry Fantasy".

    These two beauties greeted us when we arrived home from Brisbane this morning. The "Strawberry Fantasy" zygo - schlumbergera truncata - were the first to flower this year. They seem to take it in turns. Next week we shall be away for four days arriving home on Friday. No doubt there will be heaps of flowers waiting for us.

    Thanks Granny.  :D The plants are covered in flower buds so there should be a wonderful display. Do hope too many won't open while we are away next week.  :sad3:

    They certainly were, Granny. :cool4:  Could not believe just how many had opened while we were away. They look so beautiful, too. Many of the "White Fantasy" flowers were open.  :love: 

    Have taken several pics but haven't had time, as yet, to process & post them. Shall do that tomorrow.  :luck:

    This is the sight that greeted us when we arrived home from five days in Brisbane, Qld. 

    As previously mentioned, these "White Fantasy" zygo - schlumbergera truncata - flowers are a much brighter pink than this.
