Easter cactus / Schlumbergera gaertneri

I planted these cuttings last year sometime and never knew it was an Easter cactus. When other Holiday cacti were blooming during Christmas time, this plant showed nothing so I thought it was still young.
This morning, to my surprise, I've found a big bloom and two buds on the plant.

Clearly, it is an Easter cactus, and a beautiful pink one too.

It's so much the better because I haven't got an Easter cactus in my garden yet.

Congratulations then. That must have been a pleasant surprise. I agree with you that it is a beautiful shade of pink.
