How unusual, Hywel...it seems to have a similar flower to that of a snowdrops.

Yes, like a trailing snowdrop...

Yes they do look like Snowdrops :) Thank you both ...

That's an interesting one Hywel. It looks familiar - have you shown this to us before some years ago? Did you manage to get your Christmas cacti to flower at Christmas this year? Mine are usually too early but the pretty pink one timed it well this year.

That’s special :-)

That's a beauty Hywel. I've never seen one of these before and I agree it is just like snowdrops trailing down.

Thank you all for your comments about my cactus :)

Sue I think I showed a photo of this last year. I have a few different Rhipsalises.
My Christmas cacti have been hopeless, only 3 flowers between them all. They died back a bit last year and I think I will need to repot them in the spring.

O how disappointing Hywel. That's unusual for you - hope repotting will fix it.

Thanks, I hope so too.

They are rather beautiful aren’t they?

Lovely, so like a snowdrop as others have said.

Thank you both :)

It’s really lovely and I think you are about the only person I know who has one. You never see them in the garden centres. Or at least I never have.

Certainly very unusual.
