That epicactus is beautiful!  I've grown epiphyllum and have a large one now.  It's so big, there isnt' room for it.  But it does have beautiful flowers.  At midnight.

There are hundreds of spineless cactus varities. Epicactus is another example

Nice Ode to Earthworms Dallas.  Wonderful critters that help the gardner a lot.

My mother always had a xmas cactus in the window when I was young.  I never thought of it as a cactus because it had no thorns.

I thought twice to add it in my seedlist but forgot. Once I bought a small plant taking it as Christmas cactus but it turned out to be some opuntia.

Oh! Is this Christmas cactus? Schlumbergera, I like that name. Where is the accent?

Amer, do you also grow Schlumbergera cactus?  They are blooming like crazy here, right now.

Joan! I am in love with my cactus. Anything in the way of their improvement attracts me heavily. After your advice I spent at least 2 hrs in search of methods and ended up buying PH testing kit used in school labs. They use Litmus papers for testing soil samples. Thanks a lot anyway.
