Thanksgiving and Christmas cacti provide awesome color!
Popular house plants which gain notoriety beginning this time of the year are the Thanksgiving, Christmas, crab and holiday cacti.

Another holiday cactus, the Easter or Whitsun cactus has intense pink or scarlet flowers and is in a different genus (Hatiora).
ACT continues its holiday tradition
