    Default Orchid Cactus

    Not sure on the name of this, but it blooms regularly for us. Of course this is another plant that Gin gave to us a few years ago. The plant itself is rather dull looking, very flat and very long. The blooms however are wonderful. We love it, Gin. Thanks again! Take a look...
