Christmas Cactus in living room 2009-11-25 004 (Schlumbergera truncata)

This is a closer up view of the individual flowers which, as you can see, are a delicate cerise pink & white. This sits on our dining table in our living room.

Just found a site that explains how to get them to flower year after year:
http://www.wikihow.com/Care-for-a-Christmas-Cactus

I may have leant something myself! I found the article very instructive as well. Although there is a link at the end of the article permitting it to be embedded in any web site I think it is too much for here & the link above will take you to the site if you are interested.
