Description

So… here’s the down low on the difference between the Thanksgiving Cactus + Christmas Cactus::

It all comes down to the leaf shape, turns out what I have been calling christmas cactus are not actually after all these years. Thanksgiving cactus have the sharp edges on their leaves whereas the christmas cactus has a more soft, rounded shape.  In stores we are more often seeing thanksgiving cactus. I am certain I will be looking at every holiday cactus I walk past now to determine its variety!

An Easter Cactus? Well, that’s a whole different plant… The Hatiora gaertneri is a completely different species of plant and has a different flower and all together leaf shape.

Interesting, huh!?!
