A slightly filtered closeup of my small Christmas cactus.
Although my Thanksgiving cactus has already finished blooming this season, this small Christmas cactus is starting to throw off a few buds and blooms. The leaves are rounded on this plant as opposed to the slightly barbed leaves of the Thanksgiving variety. The flowers on this one are a nice pure pink, and the earlier cactus's flowers are salmon, almost orange in some lights. This plant was rooted only last year, after my 115 year old plant was clearly not going to make it to 116, so I'm very happy that this "youngster" is happy this year.
