My Easter Cactus plant is quite the showoff this year. It started blooming shortly after Easter, with just three or four buds peeking through.
Those buds opened, and I brought the plant downstairs where we could enjoy the bright, red stars. Then I noticed another one or two, then more, till it’s been in constant bloom since!
These showy flowers are so cheery, I look forward to them each year.
The blooms are much different than the more common Christmas Cactus. This article explains difference in the different “seasonal” cactus plants:
