Our Little Acre: Thanksgiving or Christmas? Which Kind of Cactus Do YOU Have?

Our Little Acre: Thanksgiving or Christmas? Which Kind of Cactus Do YOU Have? | Grown Green Gardens | Scoop.it
Haven Brand | Manure Tea's insight:

Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) has a distinctive look to its foliage. Each segment is much more sharp-cornered, more square than its Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) cousin. A little less noticeable is the way the bloom is held at the end of the foliage. Thanksgiving cactus has a more upright bent to it. When you see them side-by-side, it's easy to see the differences.

Winter greens

It used to be that after we survived on dried mutton all winter, we couldn’t wait to get our taste buds on something green. These days, that’s where lettuce comes in. Even though it seems like a delicate spring plant, it is surprisingly sturdy in cold weather.
