Like 1 Nice Thomas! "Weihnachtskaktus" in German - my great grandma had an old huge one,
which was donated to the Frankfurt Botanical Garden after her passing, needed two people
to span around it!

Thanks, Klaus.

I have it already several years and it's the first time it's blooming that nice AND in the right time of the year.
However, it's still rather small.

I've never seen such a huge one. Is it still alive?

Those leaves look similar to those of the Night Blooming Cereus. The NBC's flowers look completely different, though. I have some example photos, but they're on another computer.

Since my early childhood , I learned that this is the "Crăciunel" translated in english "Small Christmas(flower)" .I was allways amazed about its ability to bloom in the winter ,usually in Christmas time.The variery I know has the pink flowers .

I like it Thomas!
It's also called Christmas cactus.
I have a big one - the ceramic pot that is- and it's blooming every year starting with beginning of November.

Teo, mine, somehow, has both white and pink flowers.

Thank you!

@ Himself, your Christmas cactus isn't bad as well. Mine is not even half in size...
