My Easter cactus (Hatiora gaertneri) is blooming and the label wasn't kidding when it said the blooms were "bright magenta!"




Keep going!

Does it glow in the dark? Smiling

Mine is blooming, but the blooms are a lovely pastel pink. Love the magenta though! PURTY!

I got this one because of the deep red edges to the section of stem. But I like the flowers, too! :)

I got a white one in at my local Wal-Mart before Easter. Yours is pretty but I like mine too.

Gorgeous! Just curious--do you guys use soil or grow them as true epiphytes?
Keep going!

I have never seen these plants in a store. I got a slip of mine from my sister.

I grow mine in soil. It had open blooms on Easter and a lot more coming!

I love the hot and softer pinks! Mine is a red one.
