Christmas cactus from underneath

Christmas cactus from underneath (Schlumbergera truncata)

crimbo cactus Stera 141227 - Steragram sent me a leaf cutting in April, planted it and put it on the bathroom windowsill (nowhere else to put it) - noticed yesterday that it had flowered, so I must be doing something right, or at least not doing anything too wrong

I thought Crimbo cacti were red, but that must be the Easter ones. Just so glad to see something other than green on it! I'll give it some more "benign neglect", otherwise I'm bound to do the wrong thing; it's managed so far
