You learn something new every day

KSM-20181123-Christmas_Cactus-01

Both the Thanksgiving and the Christmas Cactus fall under the genus Schlumbergera which I learned as Schlumbergia years ago. The Thanksgiving Cactus has little spine-like notches coming off it’s leaves (just like a crab claw hence that common name) whereas the leaves of the Christmas Cactus are smoother. The Thanksgiving Cactus is timed to flower in November/December whereas it’s December/January for the Christmas Cactus.   —From How to Grow Christmas Cactus

Today was day for learning: in addition to learning that my “Christmas Cactus” was actually a “Thanksgiving” or “crab” cactus, I learned how to ftp into my currently under construction wordpress.org account, and how to fix the mysterious problem of the disappearing posts within it. I am so-o ready for a good night’s sleep.

  1. Beautiful photos! I think I must have a “Haloween” cactus. I put mine outside for the summer, and it always flowers when I bring it inside for the winter, at the end of October.
