In April 2019, my brother sent me some cuttings from his plant by mail. His plant came from cuttings our mother gave him almost thirty years ago from her own plant. She died in 1994. That means this is my mother’s coral cactus!
As you can see from last year’s photo, the cuttings arrived a little travel-weary, but it’s a survivor, and the plant has become a beautiful way to remember Mom.
