zygocactus flower

apricot pink flower of schlumbergera truncata christmas cactus

Schlumbergera truncata IMG 5916 - It's often assumed that all cacti are plants with savage spines, but that's not the case with this cactus species. Often referred to as 'Christmas Cactus' and by their old name of 'Zygocactus', these plants, with their succulent green jointed stems, produce spectacular flowers in a range of delicate colours. The plant's flowers usually hang down, but this plant was crammed in among other pot plants and had nowhere to grow other than upwards.
