    Mine blooms twice a year, and is more fuller and showy during November. It lasts in to December, and only one year has made it to Christmas. Yours is beautiful!

    When my BFF moved she gave me hers. It never bloomed for her. It has bloomed 3 times a year since she gave it to me 3 years ago. I think it likes where I put it. It is starting to bud right now.

    Mine is starting to bloom, but I have found that feeding it plant food when watering helps keep it blooming for awhile. Mine is pink. I like the coral color.

    There are three kinds of those cacti - Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. Right now my mother's Easter Cactus is blooming, my Christmas Cactus just finished blooming and I don't have a Thanksgiving Cactus. Isn't God's garden something else????? Happy Thanksgiving! Edie

    Beautiful.I used to have one that was pink and white. It also blooms around Thanksgiving and several other times throughout the year. I had to give it to my mom because I am allergic to it when it blooms. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Lovely! One of mine, that normally blooms in December, bloomed last summer. My mother had both Christmas and Easter cactus. Since the date of Easter is not fixed, is it any wonder they get confused? It is nice to see that these are treasured by others.

    Oh! how beautiful. I have had one for eight years and it has never bloomed. What's your secret?

    Mine are just beginning to bloom and they will continue to bloom for a month or so. I keep telling them they are supposed to wait till Christmas but they don't listen - just like kids!

    Happy and blessed Thanksgiving to one and all.
