    It's a Christmas cactus...not poinsettia. Different conditions affect their blooming. Mine are blooming right now also.

    Wow..that is one happy plant. Be glad it blooms at all! I have one that is about 25 yrs old and it stopped blooming for a few years but blooms now..all different times of the year.

    I have one that is blooming right now and does every year from Nov to Jan. Mine is probably twice as big as yours and I have had it for 17 or 18 years.
