Whole limbs are falling off
They did that before it bloomed ,now after it is in bloom. I can't grow violets once they bloom , never again to they bloom for me.

OMG! I haven't a clue unless you are over watering them........this type of cactus has been quite the challenge for me as well....I think we don't ignore them enough.

Patsy ~ Water (too much) is usually the culprit. They like drier soil not soaked nor sitting in it & sun/

Hope you had a lovely Tsgiving.

I would try cutting back the water, but increasing the humidity around it. Try placing it on a tray filled with pebbles. Don't let it sit in the water though.

Sometimes they don't like it if they are moved to another spot. Picky little things aren't they.

Jen is correct..they are picky..probably over watered..or if they are in a drafty spot they will protest too. They are beautiful little buggers:)

Such huge blossoms, you got! Is that why they fell down, from the weight?

Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for replying to my question. Because of this, I've found your blog.

You two are married for 31 years. We have been married for 51 years.

Gentle hugs,
