    Thanks for the post! Cacti have the best flowers (IMO).

    Holiday cacti are great, live on next to nothing yet flower faithfully (I have not had a problem with room lighting preventing flowering, so far as I am aware). With more attention and enough time a large, impressive specimen with dozens of flowers out at the same time can be built up.

    Beautiful flowers! Well done!
    I laugh at mine; each year it blooms in November (no! not so early!), and then again in January (no! that's too late!), but never at Christmas.

    Orange-red types like one shown used to be called Thanksgiving cactus (Zygocactus), Christmas cactus being a different, fuschia-red one (Schlumbergera). Now outlets have multiple colors, including nearly yellow. Perhaps most are hybrids, and botanical treatments of pure species seem to have gone through some changes. Holiday cactus is a good, blanketing common name for the lot.
