I just bought this Xmas cactus . It was not identified when I bought it and I'm trying to find the name.

The buds are an off white/cream colored. The flowers are salmon/peach/orange in color. I guess there is magenta in deep throat of ten flower.

My guess is possible Fantasy. Buy I need a more experienced I . Thoughts on this plant ?

Hi MomG,

It looks like Schlumbegera truncate. Often called Thanksgiving or Crab Cactus.

Hi MomG: That's a beautiful holiday cactus you have, love the color and I agree with Metrosideros, it does look like Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera truncata)
