They dub it “Christmas” cactus. It’s best to use that in the broad sense of timing.
This year I have a new plant at my home. The friend of a friend was moving and unable to take her houseplants. So I went into this season without much information or expectations.
But first a step back. A previous plant – featured on this blog at least once – bloomed on it’s own schedule. As early as Halloween and around Valentine Day after a pause.
So consider my pleasant surprise when this new plant opened the first bloom a week before Christmas. And now when I scan the plant for buds, I figure I’ll have a bit of cheerful color in my bedroom well into January.
What’s the timing at your house? Is it a Thanksgiving cactus? Christmas? Valentine?

“Christmas”my plant rarely practices.
It’s color flourishes GREEN.
It has the leaves of a cactus with rarely pink to be seen.
Last Christmas it blossomed with spendor.
I thought it had quit being shy.
I just saw one blossom, peak around the pot,
sayin,”Hear I am. Hi”.
