It’s a couple of weeks now since the Cardiff Horticultural Show, but I thought I would share one of my purchases with you.
It’s a white Easter cactus or Hatiora gaertneri. This is not to be confused with the Christmas cactus Schlumbergera bridgesii. I have both of these and although they usually keep to their appropriate seasons, they do sometimes overlap.
At the moment there are a few flowers on my pink Schlumbergera, a lot on my red Hatiora and the flowers on the new white Hatiora are starting to fade.
But here are the starry white flowers in their prime, pictured as the sun moved around one day to shine on to my study windowsill (I know, the earth moves around the sun, but you get my drift…)
Here are my other cactus blog posts:
