I live in Southern Minnesota 4b. I am currently really excited about my wetland gardens, my rain gardens, my mini orchard, and perennial vegetables.

That is a thanksgiving cactus. The points on the nodes give it away. Christmas cactus nodes are more rounded. Thanksgiving cactus are from Brazil. Christmas cactus are from Argentina. Both grow in the tree tops of the forest or jungle. I made the same mistake of identity

@docthrill I am not sure. They were marked christmas cactus with the correct Latin name. I thought they were thanksgiving cactus. Now I am not sure anymore.

If you didn't know, it would be a big (& pleasant) surprise to see the colour of the flowers based on how the buds look 👍

@gjones @jeatacake thank you. My newest find. The buds do look like the flowers would be pink.

@gjones thank you. I think it is a Thanksgiving cactus though. Nursery had it labeled Christmas cactus
