My Thanksgiving Cactus
Until today I thought I had two Christmas Cacti, one pale pink, almost white, and the other a deep pink, almost red colour. I googled Christmas Cactus and found to my surprise that the pale one is a Thanksgiving Cactus. The difference is in the shape of the "leaves" which are not real leaves but rather "stem segments" which on the Thanksgiving one have 2 to 4 saw-toothed projections and on the Christmas one the segments are rounded.
