This decided to grow in with my Christmas cactus! What is it? I have had the cactus for years. Needed to add potting soil to it, and I think that's where this came from.

    Did you mean to add a photograph?

  • Welcome! I also wonder if you meant to include a photograph. Do you have one and it didn't post? If so, open your question using edit. Click on the icon that looks like a mountain. It will ask if you want to add a picture from your computer or a web address. Choose one and hit enter. If you've done that and you get an error message, let us know and we can walk you through the process! Since you're new, have a look at our tour and browse our help center. How to Ask is a good place to start. We look forward to seeing more of you! Oct 20 '18 at 22:46
  • Jill, can you give us more information please? Where do you live? Is the cactus healthy? Did you change any conditions other than adding the soil? How soon after the new soil did the visitor appear? What do its leaves look like? I don't mean to overwhelm you, but the more we know, the better we can help! For identification, we have helpful guidelines. Please edit in anything else you can think of! We're here to help! Oct 20 '18 at 23:10
