What is this HousePlant that Suddenly Bloomed??

I’ve had this houseplant for years and it suddenly started to get these gorgeous flowers. Can you tell me the name of the plant?
Thanks so much for your help. Love the site.


Hi Tracey,

White flowered Orchid Cactus

Your plant is called an Orchid Cactus. This is a great easy care plant and will continue to bloom if you follow a few simple care instructions. Keep an Orchid Cactus a little root bound and it will flower more. Orchid Cactus need to rest for a few months in the winter, so don’t feed the plant and keep the soil dry during this time. Orchid Cactus need to be fed with a plant food high in potassium starting in late March through September. Orchid Cactus like bright indirect light but no direct sun. Once the buds appear, try to keep light, water, and temperature consistent. If you move the plant or if it gets cold, an Orchid Cactus will drop all of its new buds.
