Nurseries, garden centres, and online retailers are now displaying Thanksgiving Cacti on their shelves!  Thanksgiving Cacti are easy to grow houseplants.  One of the many endearing qualities about these plants is that we can enjoy Thanksgiving Cacti this season, but these long-lived plants can flourish for over one hundred years, allowing Thanksgiving Cacti to be celebrated and passed on to future generations. 

Giving Thanks for Gorgeous Easy-to-Grow Houseplants!

I’m feeling so grateful today.  I’m grateful to the special people and plants that I share my life with.  I relish sharing information about stunning houseplants that are easy to grow and will happily bloom through the autumn and winter months.  This is when the nights are longer, the days are shorter, and we spend more time indoors – when flowering houseplants can brighten up our days and evenings! 

Happy Thanksgiving!  If you’re celebrating today, I wish you a joyful and uplifting day of celebration.  Today, I’m celebrating my Thanksgiving cacti, which are keeping perfect time and flowering for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving cacti (also known by their botanical name, Schlumbergera) are easy to care for, long-lived houseplants that thrive in shaded and semi-shaded conditions.  Unlike traditional cacti, which grow in bright and sunny, dry and arid conditions; Thanksgiving cacti flourish in a humid environment, away from bright sunshine.
