What are the three Christmas cactus?

The Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) is a species of flowering cactus native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil. It is a popular houseplant and is often given as a gift during the holiday season. The Christmas cactus has flat, segmented stems that are usually green, but can also be red, purple, or yellow. The flowers are typically white, pink, or red and bloom in late winter or early spring.

The Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata) is a species of flowering cactus native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil. It is similar to the Christmas cactus, but its stems are more pointed and its flowers are usually yellow, orange, or red. It blooms in late fall or early winter, hence its name.

The Easter cactus (Rhipsalidopsis gaetneri) is a species of flowering cactus native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil. It is similar to the Christmas and Thanksgiving cacti, but its stems are more curved and its flowers are usually pink or purple. It blooms in late winter or early spring, hence its name.

In conclusion, there are three different holiday cacti: the Thanksgiving cactus (Schlumbergera truncata), the Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) and the Easter cactus (Rhipsalidopsis gaetneri). Each of these cacti has its own unique characteristics and blooms at different times of the year. They are all popular houseplants and make great gifts for the holiday season.
