Beautiful cactus, Cathy. It reminds me of our Christmas cactus, but this one's more showy than those are.

Thank you Rob and Ank. I like all the names that have been given to this one!! But my personal favourite is Red Orchid Cactus. So that is probably the one I will remember. : ))))

Someone stole my comment again. I said that you best believe Agnes, she knows all about it. Hugs.

I'm pretty sure this is a Zygocactus Cathy. My neighbour has it in several colours. The Nursery trade here in OZ gave it another longer name - but I can't remember it!!!
Beautiful photo - by the way!! Thanks.

Hi Sladjana!! Nice to meet you !!! : ))))
You are right. That is a funny nickname!! Thank you for telling us !!

Thank you Lorna! I'm glad you like this plant! It looks like it would be right at home in Alberobello, Italy!

In Serbia we have a very strange (funny) name for this kind of Cactus-"Mother in law's tongue" :)

Thank you Suzy!! Yes, it's a gorgeous plant.

Patsyanne, I just left my friend a message asking for the name. So I'll let you all know as soon as I have her reply.

Hi Jim. Yes, they do !! : ) But it winters indoors.
Oh wow! I bet you both had a wonderful meal !! And maybe you took a few more pictures in Joplin while you were there !?!

And even cactus blooms in Canada! Thanks, Cathy!

I took Susan to Joplin and we ate at Red Lobster. Delicious! Her sister, Leenielou got her gift cards for her Birthday and we used them today! YUM!

This one has lots of nice buds on it-I think it will be quite beautiful when in full bloom!

cevas

You're welcome patsyanne. No, sorry I don't know the name. : )

Do you know the name of this cactus? I have one hanging in my kitchen window in bloom like this and have no idea what it is. Thanks for the pic.
