Easter Cactus #2: PINK #1

The two other holiday Cacti, the Thanksgiving (Schlumbergera truncata) and the Christmas (Schlumbergera X buckleyi) derive their names from the times of their blooming, the Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays respectively. Similarly, the Easter Cactus blooms during the month of April just in time for Easter and the Easter holidays.
