After last year's blooms, one of my Christmas cactuses developed an
odd growth. It appears to be a seed pod.
I have been growing Christmas cactuses since 1961, and I have never
seen anything like this before. Has anyone else seen it? Any ideas
what's the plant is doing?
Here's a picture of the mysterious growth. (The remains of the flower
are still attached, although all of the others have fallen off.)
Here's a picture of the same plant, or another from the same original
stock, taken last November.
