Neglect has a surprising result.

Mrs B has had this Cactus indoors for many years and decided in the winter to put it outside as it was clearly brown and dead.
Months later and just recently it flowered for the first time ever.


Clearly some plants enjoy a bit of neglect.

Is this something that gardeners know about and practice?

How do you take care of a winter flowering cactus?
Put the plant in a warm spot, with plenty of light but not direct sunlight. When the flowering season ends, reduce the amount of watering and give it just enough to keep the compost slightly moist. The plant needs time to rest and recover after flowering. Move the plant to a cooler room, ideally around 12-15°C/55-59°F.

Sometimes a shock to the system encourages plants to get back on track Bickler.
Obviously your plant thought "Oh bugger, I don't like this outside lark, I'd better throw up some flowers so the Bicklers will take me back inside in the warmth again!
