Your flowers are lovely, it's amazing the different names they go by all round the world. My Aunt use to call then Crab Cactus I think because they are jointed like Crab Claws.. By what ever name the are lovely to look at... Marian

A lady told me once, there is a Christmas cactus, a thanksgiving cactus and a easter cactus. The leaves are different on these two, so don't know which is which. LOL

How pretty! How do you get them to blossom like that? I had mine sitting outside all summer, and for the first time ever, while I was away, and the nights were cold, they started putting on blossoms. But then it got far too cold for them to be outside, so I brought them in and the blossoms fell off. :( I have a dozen or so plants. They grow like weeds, but don't flower.

Beautiful healthy plants.
My zygocactus usually flower in May but this year I had to replace some which had eventually gave in to old age ,20 -25 yrs old.I bought new ones yellow ,bright red,apricot ,orange & white which are thriving but the yellow one decided to flower again last Saturday ,not a good idea when its 100 degrees outside with a hot wind blowing.They are in hanging baskets on the pergola.

Some are called Christmas cactus , for obvious reasons & seem to have flowers with zig zag shaped edges.( sharp pointed edges)

lilylady by lilylady 05 Nov 2014

One of mine have the zig zag edges and one is smooth. A lady told me there is a Christmas cactus, thanksgiving and easter cactus. Maybe I will have to search web and see what I can find

Thanks for sharing. Yours are gorgeous. I am so happy to be home with my monster cactus. I now have 3 with buds. I missed my original cactus and had to get another in each state we lived in while a friend looked after mine.
