Several are in full bloom now. Schlumbergera = "Holiday cactus" = "Thanksgiving cactus" = "Zygocactus" = sometimes, incorrectly, Xmas cactus

Salmon, cutting-grown 4 years old. Summered outdoors, North side of house.

3 years old pink. Summered same as the others.


  1. Gorgeous! I love the colour of the second. I should try growing them from cuttings.

  2. Extremely easy. I jst pot up cuttings and treat them as growing plants - no special treatment at all. Another option is to buy them from the sale table at the grocery store after they are done blooming - usually very cheap, and they are as likely to bloom next year as one that was bough in full bloom. I love growing these cacti.
