I guess, after several years, I have to accept that they really are not Christmas Cactus and not even really Thanksgiving Cactus. As always, blooming in early November:


The big old one, which I think is a different hybrid, does bloom later. But the ones that are gold, orange, or light white/pink definitely prefer the earlier days when the light is shortening rather than lengthening.  Rather spectacular plants. And forgiving, the big orange doesn’t seem to mind that I dropped it on its head the other day, it being rather out of balance in its pot. I do like them. Someday I am going to get a genuine white one.  The only real challenge is that their growth habit makes them a bit ungainly (hence the dropping on the head).
